NOAC is the Northeast Ohio AuD Consortium, comprised of:
- the School of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology at the University of Akron,
- the Program of Speech Pathology and Audiology at Kent State University,
- and the Cleveland Clinic Foundation
NOAC is jointly administered by the two universities. The University of Akron and Kent State University have been nationally recognized for their graduate audiology programs and are ideally suited to offer a collaborative professional doctorate. The Cleveland Clinic Foundation is internationally recognized as providing excellence in health care.
The collaborative nature of the Au.D. program merges the assets of these two strong audiology programs and the Cleveland Clinic Foundation into one unified professional doctoral degree program.
