NSSLHA and ASHA are pleased to announce the launch of a NSSLHA national membership recruitment project on approximately 20 campuses early next month. Both associations, in partnership, will offer CSD students who are not currently national NSSLHA members on YOUR campus, a free, one-month trial subscription to ASHA's web site, www.asha.org .
Please note that national membership is different from a local chapter membership. Please note that access to the site will be available from October 1 – 31, 2008, regardless of the date students register for it, so the sooner they sign up (beginning on October 1), the longer their access will be.
2. Free Mentor Service from ASHA's STEP mentor Program
The Student to Empowered Professional (S.T.E.P.) program offers one-to-one mentoring for students enrolled in undergraduate, graduate and doctoral and disorders programs. All students are eligible to apply, however, preference for program placement and matching with mentors will be given to those students from racial/ethnic backgrounds that have been historically underrepresented in the communication sciences and disorders professions. Students are strongly encouraged to
be national NSSLHA members in order to reap the full benefits of the S.T.E.P. mentoring program.
