At the Communication Skill Center (CSC), students can receive help with a variety of communication-related skills, such as managing anxiety, presentation organization, effective delivery, and appropriate presentational aids. The CSC is a friendly environment located in SPCH 201. Graduate Assistants are responsible for managing the CSC. Undergraduate interns have been recommended by Speech Communication faculty, have undergone thorough training, and participate in weekly staff meetings. Additionally, the interns earn academic credit for the completion of a reflective portfolio and weekly service in the CSC.


In the CSC we have computers with Microsoft Office 2007. Additionally, we have a computer with Jaws and Magic for students with visual disabilities. We also offer printing services—the first four pages are free; each additional page is 10 cents. Students are encouraged, but not required, to schedule conferences with staff in the CSC. Walk-ins are welcome. When checking in to the CSC for the first time, students will need their T#s; however, they will only need to give their last name for subsequent visits.

Please feel free to contact the CSC Director Dr. Kristen McIntyre if you have any questions or if you have a special request. Dr. McIntyre can be reached via email or at 501-569-8381.
