Hearing Loop System in Fisher 135

Recently, Institutional Equity and Inclusion (IEI) and Information Technology (IT) coordinated the installation of a hearing loop system in Fisher Hall, Room 135. This system allows students, employees, and community members who use hearing aids to have a greater ability to hear the content of classes, programs, and events in this room. The idea of a hearing loop system was originally brought forward by a hearing impaired student. The Calumet Theatre has a hearing loop system and this student indicated that Michigan Tech could benefit from a similar system. Funding for diversity and disability initiatives, received from The General Motors Corporation, was devoted specifically to this hearing loop system. IEI and IT worked with Hearing Loop Systems from Holland, MI to determine the best options for Michigan Tech. In the future, as new construction is designed on campus, hearing assistance systems will hopefully be incorporated. IEI would like to promote the availability of the hearing loop system on campus. If your department, group, or organization is hosting an event in Fisher 135 please include the statement “Fisher 135 is Hearing Loop equipped” in your advertising. If you have questions or feedback about the system please email equity@mtu.edu.
