Critical Speaking Fellowship

Communication Within the Curriculum (CWiC) is Penn’s public speaking tutoring program. Undergraduates are trained to assist their peers with presentations assigned to them by professors who affiliate with CWiC. Critical Speaking Seminars are an important part of the program. Each year, CWiC supports two doctoral candidates in the School of Arts and Sciences who want to develop new courses that are built around oral communication. In the undergraduate critical speaking seminar, public speaking is not a peripheral part of the course, but rather, an integral part of understanding the course’s issues.

About CWIC

CWiC is committed to creating a culture of learning through speaking and communication. Our goals are to improve undergraduate teaching, create an intellectual community through speaking, and ensure that Penn students graduate as capable and strong communicators.
