2020-2021 Colloquium Series

We aim to highlight theory-guided, hypothesis-driven translational research with our colloquium series.  Our series is attended by all research faculty, clinical faculty, doctoral students, M.A. SLP students, and Au.D. students.  Our colloquia are also attended by faculty in relevant departments including Linguistics and Psychology.  We aim to encourage student participation by asking our speakers to send a relevant paper for students to read in advance of the talk.  We also ask speakers to limit their talk to 40 minutes, reserving 20 minutes for questions and discussion.

Our colloquia begin at 7:00 PM on the dates shown below with the location also noted.   Please contact Dr. Jennifer Mozeiko (jennifer.mozeiko@uconn.edu) with any questions.
