Woolfolk School of Communication
Sciences and Disorders
Housed in the College of Professional Studies, the Elizabeth Carrow Woolfolk and Robert M. Woolfolk School of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) is home to the university's programs in speech-language pathology. Established in 2017, the Woolfolk School is named for Dr. Elizabeth Carrow Woolfolk, OLLU alumna and internationally recognized scholar in the field of communication sciences, and her husband Robert M. Woolfolk.
OLLU established the first program in communication disorders in South Texas more than 60 years ago and was the first institution in the state to combine professional training with clinical service with the creation of the Harry Jersig Speech-Language-Hearing Center.
The Woolfolk School offers bachelor's and master's degrees in communication sciences and disorders as well as a post-baccalaureate leveling program.
OLLU's graduate training program is accredited in Speech-Language Pathology by the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
