The JMU chapter of the Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) is an organization for undergraduate students interested in audiology and students in the Au.D. and Ph.D. audiology programs. The local chapter provides students an opportunity to network with classmates and faculty. The club at JMU focuses on five main areas of activities: advocacy, education, humanitarian, fundraising, and diversity & inclusion. Our SAA chapter provides education for the community by giving lectures on hearing conservation and protection. On the national level, SAA offers textbooks at discount cost, networking with professional audiologists, and a national conference each year. SAA provides important experiences in the field of audiology as well as a support system of students and faculty.
