The SUNY New Paltz community and special guests gathered on March 15 for an open house and ribbon-cutting celebrating the $1.5 million expansion and full renovation of the Speech-Language and Hearing Center. The enhanced facility will support enrollment growth in communication disorders programs and enable students, faculty and staff to better serve their clients.
“The Speech-Language and Hearing Center is specially designed for the teaching and learning needs of students and faculty, and as a high-quality facility that meets the needs of our clients,” said SUNY New Paltz President Donald Christian. “The combination of a strong liberal arts foundation with clinical, experiential opportunities here has served, and will continue to serve, our graduates well for their future professional and personal success.”
This renovation, which coincides with the Center’s 50th anniversary, includes a new, state-of-the-art sound booth, larger therapy areas, modernized facilities, a larger waiting room and a new entrance that provides better accessibility for clients with disabilities.
The Speech-Language and Hearing Center supports undergraduate and graduate programs in communication disorders, which are among the highest-enrolled programs at SUNY New Paltz.
