Fellows Program

Begun in the 1997-98 academic year, the Fellows Program has proven to be a highly satisfying approach to communication effectiveness for faculty and students alike.

If you are planning to teach a course that is speech-intensive, you might be interested in working with a Speech Fellow, a student consultant assigned to a specific professor for an entire semester.  Fellows often attend the class whose enrolled students they will be helping, work individually at the Speech Center with the students in the class, and develop a working relationship with the professor to keep the faculty member informed of students' progress.  Let us know the purpose(s) and evaluative criteria for your communication assignments, your goals and expectations, and your anticpated enrollment.  We will explain ways in which a Speech Fellow can assist your emphasis on communication competence.  Students currently serving as speech consultants will qualify for the fellows opportunity, and faculty interest will be met on a first-come, first-served basis.
