The Speaking Center offers the services of trained student tutors to support speaking across the curriculum. At any point of the process, from selecting a topic to delivering the speech, the Center can assist you in learning to speak, and speaking to learn. The Speaking Center includes private rooms, a camera and playback equipment, and resource materials to help students collaborate with tutors. Students wishing to keep copies of their presentations can bring recordable DVDs (available in the College Store). Tutorial assistance is available on a first-come, first-served basis, so come early.
Hours: Sunday–Thursday, 8 p.m.–11 p.m.
Location: Center for Teaching and Learning, Studio D and Group Tutor Room 2
Led by Director of the Speaking Center Pat Baker, to enhance oral communication—from creation to presentation—all across campus.
