The Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) is the national student division of the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) that serves as a collective voice for students and advances the rights, interests, and welfare of students pursuing careers in audiology. Introducing students to lifelong involvement in activities that promote and advance the profession of audiology, SAA advocates for audiology services, information, education, and representation for the profession and for consumers of these services.

- Annual University of Akron “Band Together” Hearing Protection event
- Audiology Students Donate Assistive Devices to Haven of Rest
