SASS 50th Anniversary

2019 marks fifty successful years for the School of Audiology and Speech Sciences!

The School has come far since 1969, when it began as a division of the Department of Paediatrics at UBC with just six faculty members and an average class size of 12. Today, our faculty complement is much larger and our student numbers have almost quadrupled!

To celebrate this important milestone and all those who have been integral to the School’s history, we are planning to host a series of events and activities throughout 2019. This will include a special 50th anniversary colloquium series and a celebratory weekend event including speakers, poster presentations, an open house and gala dinner.

Keep an eye out on this page for updates about all the events that will be taking place in 2019!
