Professionals in speech-language pathology, audiology, and the speech and hearing sciences have long been concerned about recruiting qualified students into academic programs. This was reflected in a 1994 ASHA priority of “celebration, expansion, and encouragement of diversity within our professions” (cited in Creaghead et al., 1995).
The purpose of this reflective article is to review outcomes of efforts of the recent past regarding recruitment into the professions to determine whether information learned at that time may be of value in addressing the present critical shortage of doctoral-level personnel in the field.
In 1994, with the realization that males and minorities are underrepresented in our professions, a cooperative pilot project between the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and the Council of Graduate (now Academic) Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders was established. Initial goals, developed by a joint subcommittee, were to create a lecture module, along with curriculum content material, and an evaluation instrument designed for introductory communication sciences and disorders classes.
