Gift Creates Fellowship in Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences

arriet Green Kopp Graduate Fellowship

Harriet Green Kopp (1917-2007) was a pioneer in the development of visible speech technology to assist deaf individuals with their communications skills. In honor of Kopp’s work, her niece, Kathryn Green, BA ’77 — a member of Columbian College's National Council for Media and Public Affairs — established the Harriet Green Kopp Graduate Fellowship in Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences through a generous gift. The fellowship will fund an annual award for graduate students planning to work with deaf and hard-of-hearing clients.
