Welcome to the Excel Communication Center

Message from the Interim Director, Vickie McCoy, MS, MA

The Excel Communication Center (located in Columbine Hall #312) contributes to academic excellence by supporting the UCCS community in a non-judgmental, casual, inclusive environment. Our center is a comfortable space that offers everything from peer tutoring, to a variety of coffee and herbal tea, to a semi-quiet place to study, hold meetings with groups, or use campus computers and printers. We are here to help you grow your communication skills no matter your major or how advanced you currently are as a communicator.  

If you have a presentation to give, our trained staff specialize in helping you further develop your speech outline, visual aid assistance (PowerPoint and Prezi), and both individual and group presentation practice so that you can rehearse before you present. Appointments are held in private rooms equipped with big screens and campus connected computers, so you don’t have to rehearse in front of others. Our skilled and caring staff can also help you practice for job interviews in a mock interview appointment. Do you have an upcoming group project? We assist your group to find common ground, set reasonable timelines for your project, and move forward as a team.  Everyone is welcome so come see us, I know we can help!
