You’ve worked hard to achieve your goals. Let’s celebrate! Your SPHSC faculty and peers have put these tributes together in honor of our outstanding 2020 graduates. 

Continuing with an important SPHSC tradition, 2020 Distinguished Alumnus Dr. Jordan Green has recorded one of these special video tributes. Dr. Green graduated from the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences with his Ph.D. degree in 1998 and is currently a Professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the MGH Institute of Health Professions. He also serves as the Associate Provost for Research, directing the Speech and Feeding Disorders Lab.  We thank him for his virtual participation!

Join in the fun and post congratulatory messages to your peers on our Department Facebook Page and hashtag your social media posts with #uwsphscgrads2020. Instructors, co-workers, family members, and friends are also encouraged to post messages for our graduates and let them know how proud you are of them and share your excitement for their next journey.

We encourage you to watch all videos (which are captioned) in full-screen mode.
