Hearing and Speech Sciences Study Abroad Fund

Your gift into the Department of Hearing and Speech Sciences Study Abroad Fund will help is provide support to students interested in participating in Global Perspectives in Service-Learning (HESP-GPS), the department’s premier educational abroad program that will provide students with a supervised and multidisciplinary, international service learning (ISL) opportunity for the reciprocal exchange of cultural perspectives, knowledge, and skills.

During the summer of 2023, Professor Thompson, along with Dr. Lacey Curry, an assistant clinical professor and audiologist, and 15 students from the Hearing and Speech Science Department at the University of Maryland College Park, embarked on a trip to Ghana for the inaugural Hearing and Speech Science Global Perspectives in Service Program.

With YOUR SUPPORT, we hope to grow this initiative and send additional students on this transformational journey, next summer, and beyond!
