ACSL: Applied Communications Sciences Laboratory

ACSL is a collaborative research lab co-directed by faculty members in the department of Speech Pathology and Audiology. ACSL was founded in the fall of 2000 and each year approximately 10 undergraduate students and 4 graduate students actively participate in research projects under the direction of a particular faculty member or graduate student. Recently ACSL has expanded its success by providing research support to members of the Greater Sacramento Community in order to facilitate the growth of evidenced based practice in the fields of speech pathology and audiology.
