View More What's New at the Lab

The Speech Lab has three locations to best serve you. Our home office is in 154 Lake Michigan Hall. We offer evening consultations in the Knowledge Market in Pew Library on the Allendale campus. Additionally, you can find us inside of Steelcase Library on the downtown Grand Rapids campus. 




The Mission of the Speech Lab is to empower speakers to shape their lives, professions, and society through confident and effective public presentations.

Speech Lab consultants are trained to work with clients on all elements of the speechmaking process including: topic selection, organization, supporting materials, and most importantly, practicing delivery. Sessions can be scheduled to help with in-class speech assignments, or with public presentations such as wedding toasts, a sales pitch, or award presentations. All consultants have completed a rigorous training program certified by the National Association of Communication Centers. In fact, the GVSU Speech Lab is one of only 16 communication centers with a nationally certified training program.
