Outlining and Organization
Mentors have the knowledge of different organization styles and the key parts for
introductions, body paragraphs and conclusions.
Feeling nervous or anxious before a presentation is completely normal. Mentors are
taught to identify speech anxiety and can lead students through exercises to address
Rehearsal and Delivery
Body language, vocal fillers and gestures are all elements of delivery that mentors
can help clients improve. The Public Communication Center also has the ability to
record student speeches.
Visual Aids and Design
The content on a visual aid is just as important as the design. Mentors are trained
in elements of visual design to help students create the most appealing and cohesive
visual aid to compliment their presentation.
The PCC strives to help students of all majors improve their communication. Communication
is complex, consisting of nonverbal, interpersonal, and intercultural communication.
If you need specific assistance, please contact the PCC and we will cater a mentoring
appointment to your needs.
