Marcia Raggio, Ph.D., FAAA, CCC-A, Professor in the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences and Audiology Clinic Coordinator. Research interests include investigation of the representation of peripheral electrical stimulation in primary auditory cortex via cochlear implants. She has received NIH funding for her cochlear implant research, American Academy of Audiology President’s Award, and California Academy of Audiology Leadership Award for Outstanding Service to the California Audiology Community. She currently serves as Vice-Chair of the Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and Hearing Aid Dispensers Board, appointed by Governor Jerry Brown. She serves as the Chair of the American Academy of Audiology’s Academic & Professional Standards Council, and has served as Chair of the AuD Task Force for the CSU Chancellor’s Office.
