2021 Friend of the Faculty Award recipient
Harmonize for Speech
Harmonize for Speech has raised over 5 million dollars to date, to provide funding for many communication-related projects, including supporting speech-language pathology and audiology students at the University of Ottawa and other Canadian universities. A Barbershop quartet visits our speech language pathology and audiology program each year to entertain with their beautiful harmonies and present excellence awards to selected second-year students and textbooks to all of our first-year students – definitely a highlight of the year. Harmonize for Speech also provides bursaries to students, in our programs, who are in financial need.
