In alignment with BYU’s strategic plan, the BYU Committee on Race, Equity & Belonging, BYU Undergraduate Education, McKay School of Education, and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, the Department of Communication Disorders seeks to establish and maintain a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for all students, faculty, and staff by creating two Belonging Ambassador positions.

The Belonging Ambassadors will:

  • Promote the inclusion and belonging of historically under-represented groups in COMD to address the need for diversity of experiences and perspectives in the profession
  • Enhance the cultural educational experience of BYU students by preparing them to address the needs of an increasingly diverse society

Belonging Ambassadors: Alexa Darracq and Hind Alsboul
