The University Speaking Center provides community members with consultation support and instructional workshop services. Our support is designed to help speakers further develop their own oral communication confidence and competence. We provide feedback, guidance, and other support in the areas of public speaking preparation and delivery, interpersonal communication, and group or team communication.
Most community members turn to us for support in getting ready to speak from the floor at a public meeting of one our bodies of government. Others take advantage of our support for Non-Native Speakers of English. Community groups often request our instructional workshops.
When working with speakers our plan is to meet them where they are. We have no particular expectations of preparedness.
The Speaking Center is located along with the Writing Center in 3211 MHRA. We are on the third floor. MHRA is on the corner of Forest and Spring Garden - diagonally across the street from the Mossman Building
