The Vision Statement
By 2017, the CSD Program will have made substantial contributions to the mission and vision of Iona College by becoming a respected graduate program of choice for motivated students seeking to better the lives of individuals with communication disorders. The success of our students will be facilitated by a dedicated faculty with strong didactic knowledge and clinical skills, and by a committed and talented staff. The faculty and staff will inspire students through a technology-rich, collaborative and student-centered learning environment to prepare for full lives and productive careers in communication sciences and disorders. The CSD Program will develop the whole person, facilitate leadership development, promote community engagement and service learning, both local and global, and encourage enrichment through diversity. The CSD Program, with ongoing support from the administration of Iona College, will secure the necessary resources, develop its distinctiveness, strengthen its infrastructure, and invest in and support the talent needed to realize this vision.
