- Deliver evidence-based hearing and vestibular assessment and management services to the culturally, linguistically, and socioeconomically diverse population of the greater New York City metropolitan area.
- Serve as advocates for persons with hearing and/or vestibular impairment.
- Be active contributors to the clinical science that subserves audiology and to the continuing development of the profession.
The overall goal of the AuD Program is to provide students within New York City, New York State, and the nation with the highest quality academic preparation and with varied and enriched clinical experiences so as to prepare them to be highly qualified autonomous clinicians providing state-of-the-art services to individuals of all ages with hearing loss.

Mission and Goals - Post-Masters Program (AuD) (Nonlicensure Qualifying)
The award of non-licensure qualifying Au.D. to Audiologists who are Professionally Certified or Licensed will allow Audiologists in the Metropolitan New York Area to obtain a professional education in Audiology to enhance their clinical knowledge and skills so that:
- They can better meet the audiologic health-care needs of the culturally, linguistically, and socioeconomically diverse population, using evidence-based practice.
