The Communication Center’s mission is to provide support for the basic courses in the Department of Communication. To this end, the tutors in the center work with their speakers to promote critical thinking and empowerment through feedback and collaborative instruction. Through individualized tutoring sessions, the center seeks to aid students in becoming more confident and reflective speakers and to excel in each part of the speech making process.
