A $10 million gift from anonymous alumni will double research and clinical faculty in Baylor University’s communication sciences and disorders department and allow the department to double its graduate student capacity from 50 to 100 students.
The gift also is expected to boost the department’s scholarly work.
“Through this truly transformational gift, these generous and forward-looking champions of Baylor have given the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders the means to realize many long-held dreams,” says Ken Starr, Baylor president and chancellor.
As a component of Baylor’s newly formed Robbins College of Health and Human Sciences, the department encompasses speech-language pathology, audiology and deaf education. The department will relocate to newly renovated space that includes clinics, classrooms and labs.
The gift also will fund several growth initiatives, including the creation of an endowed chair. In addition, an endowed fund has been established for the department, providing the capacity to expand its graduate program by modernizing clinical facilities, creating new faculty positions and upgrading technology.
