The Binghamton University Public Speaking Lab (PSL) supports student development and success in public speaking and oral presentation preparation and delivery. The PSL provides quality peer-to-peer consulting to ANY Binghamton University student seeking oral presentation assistance and critique. Our peer consultants offer constructive oral presentation consulting to our clients from planning to delivery in a risk-free, professional environment.

Binghamton University's Success Coaching

Peer and professional Success Coaches support student learning through personalized one-on-one coaching appointments, workshops and access to virtual resources. They are trained to identify potential barriers to academic success and collaboratively construct a tailored success plan for each student. Success plans are meant to be worked through in one semester and include topics such as: effective goal setting, time management, study strategies and test preparation, organization, pro ductivity management, etc. 

In addition to these focus areas, the Success Coaching staff also works closely with campus partners to serve as a source of direct referrals to all student services. If they are not able to assist with a particular challenge, they connect students with the best qualified campus partner to address the situation.
