The Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) is a professional student organization for those dedicated to the profession of audiology. The mission of the University of Wisconsin Chapter of SAA is to serve as a collective voice for students within the chapter area and to advance the rights, interests, and welfare of students pursuing careers in audiology. Chapters will engage students in lifelong professional activities that promote and advance the profession of audiology, and provide services, information, education, representation and advocacy for the profession and the public we serve.
The University of Wisconsin Chapter has a unique opportunity to be split between two University of Wisconsin Campuses – UW-Madison and UW-Stevens Point, and holds monthly join meetings between the two campuses.
Contact the SAA President at WisconsinSAA@gmail.com for more information.
