Mission and Goals
The mission of the Long Island Doctor of Audiology (AuD) Consortium of Adelphi, Hofstra, St. John’s Universities is to prepare students to be professional, knowledgeable, competent, and compassionate clinicians who utilize evidence-based principles into their professional practice. We are deeply committed to maintaining an inclusive learning environment rooted in diversity, equity, and belonging. We are responsive to influences impacting historically underserved and underrepresented populations encompassing race, ethnicity, culture, language, dialect, national origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, religion, socioeconomic status, and/or ability.
The primary objective of the Long Island AuD Consortium is to produce highly skilled practitioners who are competent to perform the wide variety of diagnostic, remedial, and other critical services within the scope of practice for audiologists, while maintaining sensitivity to cultural and linguistic diversity.
- Goal 1: Prepare students with a strong scientific and theoretical background in audiology.
- Goal 2: Develop student clinical skills that allow successful prevention, identification, assessment, and treatment of individuals with dysfunction in hearing and communication, balance, and other auditory-related systems.
- Goal 3: Prepare students as ethical clinical research scholars, who can critically evaluate and apply evidence-based practice principles in clinical practice.
- Goal 4: Develop students to be socially and ethically responsible professionals who maintain sensitivity to cultural and linguistic diversity and are active contributors to their local, national, and global communities.
