Statistically Speaking

Preceptor Proposition: Join our extended clinical educator team!

In a profession where approximately 8% of practicing professionals represent individuals who are Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC) and approximately 5% identify as male, it is important to learn more about the make-up of our profession and seek out practitioners from diverse/underrepresented groups so our students are exposed to differing perspectives of the field and are provided an opportunity to learn from diverse individuals. It is equally important that SLHS support practitioners from marginalized communities who wish to become preceptors. If you identify as BIPOC, LGBTQ+, or are a member of any other historically excluded/marginalized group and wish to serve as a clinical preceptor for Purdue students, please email the AuD Externship Coordinator, Shannon Van Hyfte at, the SLP Educational Externship Coordinator, Tamar Greenwell at, or the SLP Healthcare Externship Coordinator, Jaime Bauer Malandraki at As our profession continues to evolve, we are committed to doing our part to promote social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion and improving education and service delivery for all people.
