The launch of the Higher Education Data System (HES) is underway. The HES system is a collaborative effort of ASHA, the Council on Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CAPCSD), and the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) to facilitate comprehensive and consistent data collection and dissemination. Survey completion by academic institutions is critical to ensure communication sciences and disorders (CSD) program information is reflected in reports and trends analysis in CSD and for EDFIND, the new HES online search engine to be launched in late spring 2007.
EDFIND will replace ASHA’s Online Guide to Graduate Education and will allow students and others to learn about academic programs. It is a search engine that offers one-stop shopping through convenient searches and reports on CSD programs at all degree levels. EDFIND helps locate specific programs, segregate search results, and generate customized CSD program lists. EDFIND helps users make well-informed decisions about the academic programs that really match individual interests. Detailed program search results include information about admissions, tuition, available student funding, and so much more! Students from high school through doctoral level programs, faculty, ASHA members, consumers, and the public all can take advantage of the reports generated through this powerful new search engine.
