Outstanding Alumni Award
Susan is Assistant Dean for Student Affairs in the College of Education at Michigan State University. In this role, she oversees functions related to academic advising, admissions, summer orientation, commencement, data management and data reporting for the college. However, her most important work involves resolving problems that threaten the success of individual students at MSU. As Certification Officer for the university, she is also responsible for ensuring that all candidates recommended for certification as teachers or administrators have successfully met requirements.
Before returning to MSU, Susan was Associate Professor and Associate Director of the Communication Disorders program at the University of Virginia. As Director of the Adelman Auditory Research Laboratory, she explored the use of auditory evoked potentials in the identification of children with learning difficulties. Her work received a number of honors. Susan has also served on the editorial boards of scholarly publications, written book chapters and published a book for consumers on hearing and hearing loss. She was pleased to visit the MSU Communicative Sciences and Disorders (CSD) program as an accreditation site visitor some ten years ago.
Susan was a member of the MSU Honors College and is proud to have earned her BA and MA degrees in Audiology and Speech Sciences (now CSD) in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences. The outstanding education she received at MSU enabled her to earn a Ph.D. in Hearing and Speech Sciences at The Ohio State University. While spending decades at other highly regarded institutions, she remained a Spartan at heart and was delighted to return to MSU in 2008.Share via these networks:
