The University at Buffalo's Department of Communicative Disorders and Sciences is committed to building an inclusive, equitable, and diverse academic community where all students, faculty, and staff are valued and respected. We strive to prepare future clinicians and scholars to address the unique communication needs of individuals from all cultures and identities.
The Coalition for Antiracism and Equity (CARE) is a standing committee within the Department of Communicative Disorders and Sciences (CDS). The CARE committee was developed to examine and elevate the diversity, equity, and access standards within the CDS Department. The CARE committee aims to foster a community of shared respect and belonging for all students, faculty, and staff through broadening our collective understanding of diverse cultures, identities, and perspectives.
