UW-River Falls Administrative Policy
Dispensing of Hearing Aids
The dispensing of hearing aids is very important to the Department of Communicative Disorders for two main reasons. First, learning how to dispense and fit hearing aids provides a practical experience for the graduate students and it augments material taught in the Aural Rehabilitation (466) and Clinical Practicum (772) courses. The dispensing of hearing aids is an important part of instruction and research in speech-language and hearing programs. Second, the dispensing of hearing aids is consistent with the UW-River Falls select mission of serving the citizens of the Greater St. Croix Valley; specifically: "The university provides public service by using its resources to address problems and concerns throughout the state and region. Special emphasis is placed on cooperative extension, extension and economic development outreach."
The UW-River Falls Chancellor issues this policy in accordance with the Administrative Policy process.
