Who are we?
Welcome! We are so excited you are here. We are the National Student Speech and Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) at San Jose State University. Our mission is to inspire, empower, and support students in the field of communicative disorders and studies (CD&S) and Audiology. We hope to provide tools and opportunities for SJSU students to navigate their academic career while also preparing for their professional ones. NSSLHA at San Jose State University not only supports a diverse group of students, but also utilizes the strength of the students in the program to serve the San Jose community and advocate for better speech, language and hearing in those with communication disorders and differences.
Why are we raising money?
We are raising money to support student members to attend a state-wide professional conference as an effort to support our student scholars, inspire more students, and diversify the profession to better serve our communities. The California Speech Language Hearing Association (CSHA) holds an annual conference that targets students and professionals in the field with the latest research and professional education opportunities. This is a great opportunity for students to network, and learn about the many ways our profession contributes to the wellbeing of those with communication disorders and differences. This has traditionally been the venue that brings inspiration and excitement in students to continue with their education into the profession.
This will be the first year since the pandemic that we will be able to send our students to this conference, but only with your help!
How can you help?
Please join us to send our students to the annual professional conference to continue learning about their future career as an SLP or audiologist! The four-day conference will take place in Southern California, with an estimated cost of $1500 per student including conference registration, travel and lodging. Please consider donating on the Day of Giving to support our effort of inspiring students and diversifying our profession. Any amount is appreciated and no amount is too small!
Please also reach out to us directly if you have an idea for supporting NSSLHA at SJSU and/or collaborating with us.
