Mission

The Presentation Skills Lab provides one-on-one tutoring for students’ presentations and public speaking in an inclusive, judgment-free zone, built to engage and support diverse learners at SLCC.

Vision

The value of public speaking carries into the lives of students as they successfully transfer and find meaningful employment. As a student resource, the Presentation Skills Lab is designed to provide an interactive educational experience that strengthens communication skills and enriches the community through student success.

History

The Presentation Skills Lab is an open, free lab that meets each week on several SLCC campuses to assist with presentation assignments, public speaking, and communication for students of diverse cultures, backgrounds, and perspectives.

The lab was founded in 2016 by Communication Professors Sarah Billington and Ashley Givens in response to student requests for advanced instruction in public speaking.

Professor Billington examined similar public speaking labs at colleges and universities around the nation, as well as the Student Reading & Writing Center at Salt Lake Community College, and modeled the Presentation Skills Lab based on her research and on the values of collaboration, inclusivity, innovation, learning, and trust that are exhibited across Salt Lake Community College.

With increasing student engagement with the lab, Professor Raymond Bingham stepped up to lead as Coordinator and Tutor. A College Internship Program student joined in 2018, which added promotional efforts and peer tutoring.

The Presentation Skills Lab exists because students at Salt Lake Community College recognize the value of learning effective public speaking and communication skills. The lab continues to grow as student involvement increases, more sessions are added, and students strengthen their communication skills.
