ASHA Minority Student Leadership Program (MSLP)

The MSLP is open to students who wish to cultivate their leadership skills, interact with leaders in the professions, and learn how their association works. This program has prepared more than 650 students from racial/ethnic minority backgrounds to serve in leadership positions. MSLP alumni have answered the call to serve as leaders by volunteering in more than 80 positions on boards, committees, and councils as well as serving as editors, judges, and program or application reviewers. MSLP alumni are also serving their communities at large by working in schools, health care, and academia in the United States and abroad.
