Speech department: A tradition of community service
Sacramento State's Speech Pathology & Audiology Department is celebrating its 60th year of dedicated public service. Over those years, the department's language, speech and hearing center has brought affordable, quality care to clients of all ages and needs. The department has been ranked as one of the best graduate programs of its kind in Northern California, with dedicated and engaged students gaining real-world experience in a wide range of fields.

The program, which places students in full-time staff positions in the State Legislature, executive branch and court system, was evaluated and honored by, a career management research and information website.


Sac State researchers explore the science of placekicking
A team of Sacramento State researchers is using the University's newly acquired, state-of-the-art system of 3-D motion-capture cameras to delve into the physics behind placekicking. Rodney Imamura, one of the three researchers leading the project, says he hopes the study can result in "a baseline and a language that coaches can follow." Fellow researcher David Mandeville is leading two other studies using the capture-analysis system: on knee osteoarthritis in menopausal women and on gait performance among the elderly and their likelihood of falling.

Livingston Lecture exhilarates: The annual Livingston Lecture had never seen anything quite like what Professor Rita Cameron Wedding delivered earlier this month. The director of the Women's Studies Department embraced music, shunned the lectern and confronted race relations.
