The Northeastern University Student Speech Language and Hearing Association (NUSSLHA) is the department’s student government association created to facilitate practical, fun, and functional activities for the students in the program outside of the clinic and classroom settings. Students run NUSSLHA under the supervision of a faculty advisor. A student representative attends department meetings and acts as a liaison between students and faculty.
NUSSLHA provides a great opportunity to reach beyond the classroom to enrich your undergraduate and/or graduate experiences at Northeastern University. In the past, NUSSLHA has been responsible for planning guest speakers, comprehensive exam review sessions, CPR courses, and various social events around Boston, as well as an end of the year celebration.
The Northeastern University’s Student Speech Language and Hearing Association is a subdivision of ASHA’s National Student Speech Language and Hearing Association (NSSLHA). This organization is for both undergraduate and graduate students. With membership totaling around 11,700 students, NSSLHA extends itself across more than 340 chapters at colleges and universities nationwide.
