In 1997, the United States Department of Education funded a three year personnel preparation project in the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department (CSD) at Howard University. The training program was designed to provide a specialization in augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and cultural diversity.
Howard University is a Carnegie I research university of national and international stature charted by the United States government in 1876 for the purpose of providing high quality education primarily for African American students. It is the nation's flagship among the historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), having produced more Black graduate students than any other university in this country. The CSD at Howard is the only HBCU which has retained a predominantly African American student population. The other 12 graduate programs in CSD housed at HBCUs maintain a majority of mainstream students.
