The mission of the CSD department is to prepare ethical, research-conscious, and culturally respectful speech-language pathologists, committed to preventing, assessing and treating communication and swallowing disorders across the age span. The CSD program is 11 years old and is accredited by the Council of Academic Accreditation (CAA). Based on a cohort model the CSD program prepares graduates to provide services in medical, school and private practice settings. The department houses a unique clinic that exclusively assesses and treats adults with acquired brain injury and other neurological problems.

CSD is located on the Rinker Health Science campus in Irvine, California, which is home to several graduate health science professional programs, including physical therapy, pharmacy, and physician assistant studies. The campus is distinguished by its innovative research laboratories, teaching and learning technology, and emphasis on inter-professional education, evidence-based practice, and health promotion and prevention. The newly established Institute for Interdisciplinary Brain and Behavioral Sciences on the Rinker campus provides opportunity for interdisciplinary research with leaders in neuroscience. Additionally, the CSD program is strategically located near numerous medical centers and in the heart of Orange County, where we are associated with centers, such as the RiteCare Childhood Language Center of Orange County and 30+ school districts.
