The purpose of this guide is to provide resources for finding information to support oral presentations and arguments
Oral Communication is defined by the American Association of Colleges and Universities as “... a prepared, purposeful presentation designed to increase knowledge, to foster understanding, or to promote change in the listeners' attitudes, values, beliefs, or behaviors.”
Hamilton also values Communication and Expression (expressing oneself with clarity and eloquence, in both traditional and contemporary media, through writing and speaking, and through visual, aural, gestural and other modalities) as part of the College's Purpose and Goals
