I hope no one thinks I'm being rude, but this is something that has been on my mind for quite a while, I have visited many schools/ Audiology and Speech Pathology programs across the country and one of the first things that I notice when visiting these school and meeting students is that not many of the Au.D programs are diverse. While many of the Speech Pathology programs tend to be very diverse and many of the students are from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds. However in the Audiology programs minorities are extremely under-represented . I often wonder why there is such a large contrast regarding diversity between Speech Pathology programs and Audiology programs? And how can this issue be improved upon in Audiology programs and the profession overall?
