Student Accommodations

Hearing Assistance - What instructors need to know

UNL is committed to meeting or exceeding the requirements set by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) for public assembly areas. Where required, Information Services supplies hearing assistance receivers for students with hearing impairments. In our lecture halls, receivers are located in the instructor station at the front of the room, usually in a drawer that is clearly marked. Instructors should be aware of these accommodations and be prepared to provide these receivers as needed. The receiver packs are compact, similar to the lapel microphone. The receivers will work with either a standard set of headphones or ear buds. A neck loop is also provided that will transmit the signal to a hearing aid. Students should be offered the headphones or the neck loop.

Audible Alarms

Classroom devices may be secured with an audible alarm. If alarm is sounding, you should take immediate action to protect yourself and your students. Please post this flyer in your faculty meeting space.
