Services for Faculty and Staff

If your course syllabus includes a group or individual presentation component, you may wish to recommend or require a practice session at the Speech Center. It is important to inform the students as early in the semester as possible, so that they can plan their schedules and reserve a convenient appointment time.

Faculty and staff members are welcome to visit the Speech Center for their own practice purposes. Since it was established in 1996, visits to the Speech Center have included more than two hundred scheduled by faculty, staff, and administrators. Practice sessions have included preparation for upcoming conference paper presentations, examination and review of lecture style and delivery, practice prior to Board and Alumni gatherings, and speeches recorded when one cannot be at the event in person, but wishes to make an announcement or pay tribute nevertheless.
