As a result of re-approval, the University of Mississippi Department of CSD agreed to continue their compliance with ASHA CEB standards and can continue to promote their organization and courses using the ASHA CE logo on promotional course material. In addition, the University of Mississippi Department of CSD is listed on the ASHA CEB’s Approved CE Provider list and their courses that meet CEB standards appear in the ASHA CEUFind on the ASHA website at www.asha.org/CE.
