U of L Oral Communication Program

Visit the Speakers Center and let our mentors help you

Dedicated to improving speaking skills, the Department of Communication’s Public Speaking Center is staffed with Public Speaking Mentors who help guide students through the process of preparing and delivering oral presentations. Students taking any course – not just a speech course – or any Faculty/Staff/alumni who need help with presentations are invited to visit the Center for help and guidance with their presentations.

We will be providing speech help in person in our Speakers Centers, SK (Strickler Hall) 021 (Lower Level).

There are no appointments. Just drop by during their listed office hours and let them help you brainstorm topics, organization approaches, outlining, and practicing your speech before you present in class. Bring a hard copy of your outline or your computer down to share them your work electronically. You MUST bring your outline or a downloaded copy of your outline of whatever project you are working on so they can help you. You MUST have something to work on during your meeting. If not, they won’t be able to help you.

For Online classes only: If you are in an online course please email a speech mentor for their help with your speech.  You can find their email with their information page. Please email them and put in the subject line:  your instructor’s name, the course number you are in,  and a subject for what you need their help with at the moment.  In the body of your email, please put the speech you are currently requesting help with and then your questions. You can attach your outline to the email so they can look at it and offer ideas and guidance.  You can also attach a copy or link to your speech video and they can watch it and provide feedback.
