2022 Re-accreditation Announcement

The Master of Science (MS) education program in Speech-Language Pathology at Marywood University is an applicant for re-accreditation by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), 2200 Research Boulevard, #310, Rockville, MD 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700. As part of the re-accreditation site visit a Virtual Public Meeting will be held on Thursday, March 3rd from 5-5:30 PM. The purpose of this meeting is to solicit public comment related to our program’s compliance with the published Standards for Accreditation of Graduate Education Programs in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology, effective August 1, 2017. 

Individuals who wish to provide input about a CAA-accredited program seeking continued accreditation may do so in 2 ways:

  1. Submit written comments prior to the site visit. All comments are due in the Accreditation Office no later than 15 days before the first day of the scheduled site visit. Comments received after this time will not be forwarded to the site visit team for consideration during the accreditation review, in accordance with the procedures specified in Chapter XII of the Accreditation Handbook caa.asha.org/siteassets/files/accreditation-standards-for-graduate-programs.pdf
  2. Provide comments to the site visit team during the program's scheduled site visit, such as during the public meeting.

All comments must:

  1. Relate to a program's compliance with the current Standards for Accreditation.
  2. Identify the specific program seeking continued accreditation with the CAA.
  3. All written testimony - including comments faxed or submitted as e-mail attachments - must include the commenter's name, address, telephone contact information, and the commenter's relationship to the program in order for Accreditation staff to verify the source of the testimony. All comments must be signed.

Comments that do not meet these requirements will not be considered, and the individual or group commenting will be notified.
