CDS Given Award

The SPEAK OUT!® Therapy & Research Center of New York, headed by Laura Roberts and Kaila Stipancic, PhD., in the department of Communicative Disorders & Sciences has been awarded the University at Buffalo Civic Engagement Research Fund Grant, which supports research that advances community-based research and scholarship.

The fund supports community-based research that has the potential to evolve into larger studies that not only advance knowledge, but has the potential to make a difference in the lives of external constituencies and/or the potential to affect policy and practice.

Other criteria in this grant approval included potential for published scholarship, collaboration with an external partner, contribution of the research to public policy and to the lives of constituencies, and a plan to disseminate research results with the research partner to broaden arenas of policy or practice.

This $5000 award will be provided during the 2023-2024 academic year.
