Microphilanthropy in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences

Microphilanthropy is a model of giving that engages recipients and donors at a very personal level. The College of Nursing and Health Sciences promotes this practice among student groups as a model of leadership that develops students' sense of social responsibility while increasing opportunities for international and multicultural experiential learning and research for their benefactors.

The 2013 American Speech-Language Hearing Association Convention Micro-fund

Graduate and undergraduate students in the Communication Sciences and Disorders program are raising funds to support a trip to the 2013 Convention of the American Speech-Language Hearing Association in Chicago, where UVM's own Dean Patricia Prelock will preside as President. Students will learn state of the art information regarding children and adults with communication disorders such as autism, stuttering, traumatic brain injury, stroke, language impairment, and hearing impairment, which they will share upon their return.

The American Speech-Language Hearing Association is a professional organization for speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and speech, language and hearing scientists designed to provide up-to-date, high quality research and education materials for the field. The organization's annual convention highlights current findings for practicing members and students pursuing degrees in the field.
