Welcome to the REC (Resources for Excellence in Communication) Center!*

The REC-Resources for Excellence in Communication Center provides instructional resources that aid students in the application of effective communication skills.  Trained staff are available for one-on-one tutoring assistance in the entire speechmaking process, which includes researching, organizing, and practicing.  In addition, the REC Center’s mission is to provide a non-threatening environment for clients to identify and practice effective interpersonal and group communication skills.  

The REC Center has multiple computers, video-viewing equipment, conversation areas, and practice/meeting rooms equipped with Destination units.  Clients are aided in the creation of computer generated visuals, and then have the opportunity to practice how to effectively incorporate visuals in speech delivery.  An important step in the improvement of speaking skills involves using available REC Center camcorders to practice and then self-critique.

The REC Center also has numerous instructional videotapes/DVDs that cover specific communication content areas giving students the opportunity for additional clarification of information. Click here for showcase speeches and Speaking with Confidence Video Series.

*(Starting January 1, 2015, the REC Center will officially be renamed the Communication Resource Center--CRC)
