NSSLHA is the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association and the national organization for graduate and undergraduate students interested in the study of normal and disordered human communication  This organization is a great resource for learning about careers that fall under the umbrella of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences (SLHS): speech-language pathology, audiology, and speech and hearing science.

MU NSSLHA invites professionals as guests to our monthly meetings to describe their work experiences and day-to-day activities to give SLHS students a better idea of what professional life is like.  We also have service opportunities supporting people with communication problems, the MU Speech & Hearing Clinic and the Robert G. Combs Language Preschool.  For more than 25 years, NSSLHA has also organized and staffed the annual Update Seminar – a day-long continuing education opportunity for SLPs from around the state.

MU NSSLHA is recognized by national NSSLHA as a gold status chapter since 2013 and a state gold level chapter since 2019, the highest level of recognition available.
