The philosophy of the Communication Sciences and Disorders and Speech-Language Pathology Program at Lebanon Valley College is that the role of the speech-language pathologist is to provide client-focused therapy that is outcome-based and culturally sensitive. This philosophy aligns with the student-centered mission of Lebanon Valley College that embraces differences and seeks to empower students with a liberal arts education. We believe in the mission of the college to provide immersive learning experiences that will aid in the development of analytical decision-making skills using evidence-based approaches for clinical practice. We encourage the students to pursue citizenship and lifelong learning.
