About Our University & Programs
Nestled between two mountain ranges in southeastern Wyoming, the University of Wyoming (UW) offers varied academic and lifestyle opportunities including year-round cultural and recreational activities. Located in Laramie, a town of more than 30,800 with a unique blend of sophistication and western hospitality. For more information on UW and Wyoming, visit the about UW website.
The Division of Communication Disorders at UW has a long history and strong reputation, offering initial coursework in "speech corrections" in 1940, and clinical services in 1943. Since initial accreditation in 1973, we have had three ASHA Fellows on faculty. We offer a Masters of Science in Speech-Language Pathology, a program that is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology. Our program is known for innovative research, with several externally funded researchers on faculty, and well-known and published faculty. We also are known for our outstanding clinical education program. Our program also has a focus on telepractice, an area of practice that is important to both urban areas and rural areas.
The Division of Communication Disorder’s mission is to produce practice-ready speech-language pathologists, who are prepared to work in a rural state with clinical populations across the lifespan. The Division engages the community, encourages inter-professional practice, and conducts research that advances clinical practices across the state and region. The Maggie Scarlett Chair in Speech-Language Pathology will ensure that UW and the Division can continue this important work and meet the workforce need of SLPs in Wyoming.
