The University of Nebraska at Omaha National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (UNO NSSLHA) Chapter is a student organization that helps students gain a greater awareness of the issues that affect the field of speech-language pathology and audiology through guest speakers, volunteer projects, programs at meetings, and various other educational and service based programs. The UNO NSSLHA chapter is an organization devoted to students majoring in speech-language pathology and audiology and the chapter provides many benefits to its members.
The UNO NSSLHA chapter follows the mission statement of NSSLHA:
"The mission of the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association is to benefit its members by continually improving its support, promotion, and advocacy of the highest quality preparation of professionals in audiology, speech-language pathology and speech and hearing science."
UNO NSSLHA provides students the opportunity to network with other students and professionals in the community. Also chapter members get the benefits of two memberships for the price of one. UNO NSSLHA is also a Collegiate Sertoma organization. Sertoma stands for Service to Mankind. This organization emphasizes community based volunteer service work, which fits within the mission of the UNO NSSLHA chapter. For more information about membership, please check out our benefits tab.
Membership opportunities are available for students in the speech-language pathology and audiology major at the local, state, and national level. Membership in each of these associations provides access to many different valuable resources.
