National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA)

The National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) is the organization for undergraduate and graduate students interested in the study of normal and disordered human communication behavior. You may join the UWM campus chapter and/or the national organization which is affiliated with the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).

Members of the national organization receive several journals and a reduction in dues the year they initially join. The campus chapter provides opportunities to network with other students, socialize, provide service through fundraising events, and learn more about the professions of speech-language pathology and audiology.

Volunteer Service

The UWM Center for Community-Based Learning, Leadership, and Research provides the campus with different opportunities to volunteer throughout the city and beyond. There are opportunities to make a real difference by working to improve the environment, mentoring local kids, stocking shelves at a food pantry, serving breakfast to Milwaukee’s homeless community, engaging in an alternative spring break, and helping older adults.
