Our consultants' commitment to one another, to our peers, and to our community is to:

  • Act in a way that promotes trust.
  • Hold each other accountable.
  • Serve one another with respect.
  • Engage the whole person.

The Media Center/Speaking Studio Syllabus Policy

Harness your strengths with a one-on-one consultation at the Marian University Speaking Studio (Clare Hall 018). No matter your stage of the speech-making process (topic selection, research, organizing, outlining, or delivery), our studio has the resources for you. In addition to assisting with speeches and individual/group presentations, we’re also here to support you with public speaking anxiety. You can meet with a student consultant by appointment or during walk-in hours Monday through Friday. You can also schedule an online appointment Monday through Friday or Sunday afternoon. For details, view our Centers & Programs page. The speaking studio is part of the Media Center (lowest level of Clare Hall); check out our website for details on the ways we can help you with podcasting, film, or design projects through our media lab, a podcast room, film studio, and other resources.
