The Towson University Au.D. chapter of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NSSLHA) is an academic and professional graduate student association. Our chapter mission is to serve as a collective voice to advance the rights, interests, and welfare of students pursuing careers in audiology. This is accomplished by providing services, information, education, representation, and advocacy for the students, the profession, and the general public.

The Towson University Au.D. chapter of NSSLHA is a dynamic force of student involvement both on and off campus. Along with philanthropic projects to the surrounding communities, our chapter also offers networking and educational opportunities with local audiologists and professional guest speakers. The Towson University chapter of NSSLHA firmly believes in service learning and networking with practicing audiologists to ensure that its members are well-versed in national and local audiological issues.
