University of Wisconsin–Madison

Community Outreach

Rooted in the Wisconsin Idea, the UW-Madison Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders employs best practices in inclusive excellence to engage in outreach activities that directly benefit professional colleagues, students, and individuals and their families in the community. A commitment to service and outreach is not only a major part of our mission, but it is also a passion of our students and faculty.

Our outreach includes audiology and speech language pathology services at little to no cost to the underserved, education and training to the public and other professionals, and hearing loss prevention programs for those at risk for noise-induced hearing loss.
