Tiffany Chang, a 2011 graduate in Communication Disorders, was one of our outstanding students receiving numerous awards and scholarships during her tenure here at SUNY New Paltz. As an undergraduate student, Tiffany participated in speech/language practicum and research experiences allowing her to begin to integrate what she learned in classroom theory courses to real-life situations. Tiffany also participated in several research experiences with distinguished faculty at NYU. These experiences were invaluable to Ms. Chang as she readied her applications for graduate schools. Tiffany was accepted at a number of prestigious institutions for graduate study and decided to attend Columbia Teacherâ€™s College. She has recently returned from spending almost a month in Cambodia doing speech therapy in several villages there. Currently, Tiffany is participating in research in the swallowing, voice and neuroimaging labs at Columbia and her clinical placement this semester is at Mt. Sinai Hospital. Tiffany is the epitome of a well-rounded, liberal education student. Her courses in biology, anthropology, linguistics, mathematics, composition, art and language strengthened her studies in her major and allowed her to more fully appreciate the experience of working abroad. She is returning to SUNY New Paltz to share her experiences with interested students and faculty. Please join us in welcoming back this outstanding and successful alum.
