Minority Student Leadership Program (MSLP):

The MSLP is a leadership development program established for undergraduate seniors, master's students, AuD students who are enrolled in communication sciences and disorders programs, and post-entry level SLP students who are enrolled in a clinical or research doctoral degree program. Up to 40 students will be selected to participate in the Minority Student Leadership Program which takes place during the ASHA Convention. The purpose of the MSLP is:

  • To recruit and retain racial/ethnic minorities that have been historically under-represented in the professions of audiology and speech-language pathology

  • To provide focused educational programming and activities to build and enhance leadership skills

  • To provide an understanding of how the association works

  • To provide an opportunity for program participants to interact with leaders in the professions of audiology, speech-language pathology, and speech, language, and hearing sciences


In addition, the MSLP offers its participants the chance to network with ASHA leaders, university faculty, and clinicians who can offer educational and career opportunities and who have continuously supported the success of the Minority Student Leadership Program. Participants will also get a chance to meet and talk to MSLP alumni as well as other young leaders. All of these networking opportunities give participants exclusive access to learn about in-demand resources to move their careers forward.
