New Multicultural/Bilingual Emphasis
The M.A. program in Speech-Language Pathology is now identified as having a multicultural/bilingual emphasis. This year the faculty added a new 1-credit course to the curriculum as one way to address the goals of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association for building cultural competence among clinicians providing services to an increasingly diverse population.
The course, entitled "Special Topics in Speech-Language Pathology: Multicultural Issues" was taught by Ms. Garza-Prisby and incorporated invited speakers such as the new WSU Associate Provost for Diversity and Inclusion, Dr. Marquita Chamblee. Our M.A. clinical training pro-gram also builds student cultural competence through supervised placements with diverse client caseloads.
Wayne State Landscape
Changes to the WSU landscape include the M-1 Rail, which will open for passengers in less than a year. The "QLine" will run along Woodward Avenue with a stop right outside our Rackham building. Construction of this modern streetcar line is fueled by a public-private partnership and will unite De-troit communities and serve as a catalyst for economic development. The QLine will allow us quick ac-cess to shops, restaurants, and sports events in downtown Detroit.
