The National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) is a pre-professional membership association that exists to benefit its members by continually improving the support, promotion, and advocacy of the highest quality preparation in audiology, speech-language pathology, and speech and hearing science. Many communication science programs form local chapters:

  • To encourage professional interest among college and university students in the study of normal and disordered human communication behavior.
  • To assist college and university departments and local organizations interested in speech, hearing, and language behavior and disorders.
  • To provide professional information.
  • To provide a vehicle for student representation in matters of professional concern.
  • To develop leadership skills for students. Many NSSLHA chapter presidents go on to assume leadership roles on the NSSLHA executive council and in ASHA or the state associations.

The USC Chapter of the National Student Speech-Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) is dedicated to supporting the clients served by our profession, the department, and the students enrolled.
