Promotes public speaking as a vehicle for civic engagement

Public Speaking and Civic Engagement advocates for being an engaged citizen of democracy by communicating ideas and information that could benefit and improve one’s community.  It teaches through a clear, engaging narrative and uses special features that demonstrate specific ways in which students and citizens can use public speaking to become better citizens.
