Professor Gayle Belin to retire, fund set in her honor

Gayle Belin, a clinical associate professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, will retire this year.

Gayle has served students, fellow professionals, and community members in a variety of capacities for nearly 25 years. Her contributions to the field of speech-language pathology include teaching, mentoring, and inspiring students in the classroom and the clinic - in not only the department of communication sciences and disorders, but also theatre, music, and athletics as well. As a clinical specialist and consultant on voice and cranio-facial teams in collaboration with Fletcher Allen Health Care and the UVM Medical School, she has provided assessment, treatment, and clinical guidance to many children, students, and families.

Gayle has presented workshops and published on issues including supervision, voice, and cranio-facial differences. She has served as an active member and president of the Vermont Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and as ASHA legislative councilor. Gayle offers her support with insight, enthusiasm, and compassion.

Please join us in celebrating Gayle's legacy by donating to the College of Nursing and Health Services Dean’s Fund established in her honor. The money raised will sustain clinical workshops addressing issues of importance to speech-language pathologists.
