Assisted Listening

hearing impaired students

For those that are hard of hearing, it is frustrating enough trying to listen to ordinary conversations. But being in class and unable to hear the lecture clearly can be detrimental to your success at Ross!

You could request a notetaker through the Division of Student Affairs, but everyone has their own style of taking notes. Following someone else's notes may not be very helpful. Also, if you are more of an audio learner then visual, it's hard to grasp the concepts when you cannot hear the professor clearly.

Ross offers special listening devices to assist the hearing impaired. Infrared sensors are installed in all of the large classrooms in the Ross Building, which can detect the presence of assisted listening devices in the room. These devices are a headphone set that connects with these sensors and the volume of the lecture is amplified so you don't miss any crucial information.

How to get devices

Assisted Listening Devices can be obtained on a per-day basis. Email Classroom Support to request for a listening device for the day.
NOTE: We have a limited number of devices, so be sure to give at least one day's notice.

a note to faculty

If you have any students that are struggling to hear your lecture, be sure to tell them about these assisted listening devices. We all want the our students to have the best opportunity to be successful!
