Advisory Board

The Board assisted the Chair of the SLP program in attaining its goals and strategic plan. The Board provided guidance to develop a signature graduate program in providing international leadership in research, excellence in education and clinical training, and service that advances the field and improves the lives of individuals with communication disorders. The purpose of the Board is to foster excellence in the development of the SLP Department. The Board will accomplish this by providing input on academic, clinical, and research issues. The Board functions in an advisory capacity to the Chair of the SLP department. The Board has no legislative, administrative, or programmatic authority and is advisory only.

The Advisory Board has the following primary functions:

  • Provide advice and counsel to the Chair on matters for which external advice is needed and/or recommended. This may include strategic planning, physical facilities, and potential service to the community.
  • Increase awareness and serve as advocates for the Speech-Language Pathology Department at Stony Brook University at the local, state, national, and international level.
  • Form an advocacy network for the department to enhance our reputation and potential resources.
