    Communication Assessment and Learning Lab

At the Communication Lab on Arizona State University’s west campus, we believe that every person has something to say and our job is to help them say it in an organized, confident, and compelling manner. We promise to meet speakers where they are, regardless of education, prior life experience, culture, or background.  We are dedicated to igniting voices and inspiring tomorrow’s advocates.

For those who aspire to become better public speakers, CommLabASU’s mission is to provide a safe, creative space that helps you develop and improve your oral communication and presentation skills with the latest technology to support you. Public speaking takes many forms and there is a high demand for individuals who are authentic, proficient communicators.

Whether you lack confidence in your speech content, or are nervous about speaking in public, let our mentors and coaches help you. They offer constructive and credible feedback and guidance in a friendly, respectful, and professional environment.

Your speaking journey toward presentation improvement can happen in a number of ways:

In person

The welcoming setting and useful feedback makes CommLabASU a great place for New College students enrolled in presentation-based courses (link to section of appointment page that shows the classes we serve.)  to improve their public speaking skills at all stages of an oral presentation including idea generation, outline formation, organization, delivery, and self-reflection. Schedule an appointment or inquire about the availability of walk-in sessions.  CommLabASU is opened Monday through Friday and is located on ASU’s West campus in Sands 334. Phone:  (602) 543-5766 


In association with ASU Online and the Communication Lab, online public speaking (COM 225) offers an innovative class experience, which students are engaged in public speaking through an instructive, constructive, and encouraging environment. At the student’s convenience, speech development, organization, speaking, managing speech anxiety, non-verbal communication are learned, analyzed and discussed inside a supportive virtual community.

A life-long learning mindset is essential in the 21st century. That’s why CommLabASU is proud to offer workplace communication education. Our communication training and development is dedicated to help you and members of your organization become more effective communicators.

In the Community
