In the Summer of 2023, the CSULB Speech-Language Pathology Department hosted a 4-week student exchange program for five undergraduate students from the Department of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology at the Asia University in Taiwan. Besides taking English and Culture classes coordinated by the International Office, these five Taiwanese students joined the Class of 2024 for seminars on AAC and Dysphagia in the mornings. They also participated in afternoon clinical sessions at the CSULB Speech-Language Clinic. It is a unique and valuable opportunity for students to learn about different cultures and our profession in two countries. It sure is a busy, productive, and rewarding summer for students.
