Oral Communication Center
The Oral Communication Center helps students and faculty reach Hamilton’s high standard for effective oral communication. The center provides students with one-on-one peer tutoring and group consultations. It also offers credit-bearing courses in communication skills, customized support for courses, workshops and seminars.
The center maintains a library of textbooks, videos and tip sheets on specific oral communication issues. Students can record and review their presentations in the center's practice rooms.
Faculty members from any discipline may request customized oral communication support for their courses.
A range of topics from "Managing Speech Anxiety," "Nailing Your Job Interview" to "Knowing Your Audience" were covered at the recent "Hamilton Speaks" event. Events for 2016-17 will be announced in the fall.
