The MSLP is a leadership development program established for undergraduate seniors and master’s students in communication sciences and disorders, AuD students, and PhD students. Up to 40 students are selected for the program, which takes place at the ASHA Convention, Nov. 15–17 in Boston.
Students selected for MSLP receive complimentary convention registration, up to five nights’ lodging, a meal stipend and program materials. Participants are responsible for transportation to and from Boston and personal incidentals.
At the convention, MSLP participants have opportunities to build and enhance leadership skills, learn about ASHA governance, interact with leaders in the professions, and network with ASHA leaders, university faculty, and clinicians who can offer educational and career opportunities. The leadership exposure can be fruitful—following the 2017 program, one student was invited to serve on the 2018 convention topic committee for hearing, tinnitus and vestibular science.
The revised program, introduced last year, adds a team-based leadership challenge to convention activities. In this challenge, participants bond quickly and rely on one another to gain the information and resources each team needs to address their leadership issue.
“The best part of the program was being a part of a team,” said one 2017 participant. “I had six colleagues, in different class levels and with different professional experience, strengths and insight. We pushed each other to grow, relied on one another for support, and figured out ways to overcome areas of weakness. I can’t thank the MSLP enough for providing me lifelong friends and fellow colleagues to develop further in this profession.”
