Speech Center assistance, beyond class assignment preparation and practice, includes advance planning for:

  • career interviews
  • conference presentations
  • broadcast appearances
  • senior thesis or capstone course defenses
  • group presentations
  • reports of findings by faculty and student researchers

The key to all preparation is allowing enough time in advance for the kind of contemplation and practice you may decide you need.  

Speaking-intensive courses across disciplines take advantage of the Speech Fellows Program to provide mentoring that is tailored to individual needs of class members. The Speech Fellow meets with each student several times during the semester, and uses the sequence of consultations to observe and encourage progress toward higher levels of speaking competence.
