Speech Communication Center

The primary mission of the Speech Communication Center, which is now located in the IDE Building Room 201, is to ensure that the Missouri S&T campus is in compliance with the Missouri Revised Statutes by providing communication skills assessment to the campus’ new graduate teaching assistants.  The center also provides oral communication consultation to the campus, coordinating with the Department of Arts, Languages, & Philosophy to provide technical (recording) support to oral communication classes.

The Graduate Teaching Assistant Communication Skills Workshop, affectionately known as the Workshop is held twice a year the week before the Spring and Fall semesters start.

During the semesters we administer the SPEAK test for graduate students who are non-native speakers of English. 

For those who do not pass the SPEAK or the GTA Workshop we offer the ACS class .
