CWiC & Graduate Students
Unfortunately, CWiC does not currently employ graduate student speaking advisors. Any Penn student (undergraduate or graduate) may work with an undergraduate speaking advisor during the walk-in hours at the Speaking Center.
Note that the advisor is trained in public speaking. CWiC does not assist graduate students with classroom instruction. Help with classroom teaching strategies can be found at The Center for Teaching and Learning.

CWiC offers advanced doctoral students in the School of Arts and Sciences the opportunity to teach their own courses through the Critical Speaking Seminars program. Critical Speaking courses are discipline-based courses in the liberal arts that consider some aspect of oral communication from the point of view of the discipline in which the course is taught.
