Public Speaking Center

Public Speaking Center

Located in the heart of Communication Studies is the Public Speaking Center. The PSC provides support to all UTK students in the basic communications courses (210 & 240) on their assignments and general communication & public speaking consultation for UTK students. 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.


  • To further support the teaching and skill building around communication, public speaking and business-specific communication being taught in the basic courses of the Dept. of Communication Studies.
  • To create an open & inclusive environment that is a part of the mission, values & vision of the Dept. of Communication Studies and the College of Communication & information
  • To provide a unique learning experience where instruction & coaching are more hands on and intimate than what is normally found in a classroom setting.
