HESP seeks to cultivate an environment where individuals of diverse race, color, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, religion, nationality, age, height, weight, disability, and marital and parental status may succeed professionally and personally.

The Diversity & Inclusion Committee recognizes the critical need for cultural humility in research, scholarship, and clinical practice for speech-language pathology and audiology. We support student, staff, and faculty diversity learning, promote equity of opportunity within HESP, and work collaboratively to create an inclusive academic community.
