You are also more than welcome to inform students of this service for any reason you may desire. Here is some suggested syllabus wording:

"Florida Atlantic University Speaking Center offers free public speaking consultation services for FAU students, faculty and staff. Their trained peer consultants work alongside FAU students on projects in all disciplines. They provide free one-on-one consultations, small group workshops, and other speech communication-focused resources. If you need assistance with a presentation for a class or for a university-related activity, you can get feedback and advice from consultants in the Speaking Center. Their services are delivered face-to-face and online. Their goal is to develop the skills and confidence to become effective and ethical speakers who can communicate ideas clearly in face-to-face and mediated formats.

To learn more about the Speaking Center, check out their website. Or use this link schedule an appointment for a consultation."
