On March 12th, Professor Urbanovich’s public speaking class participated in a Day of Advocacy. Students practiced their right to free speech, engaged in civil dialogue, and discussed issues that were important to them. Since 2008, Urbanovich has tasked students to present their final assignment – a persuasive speech - in the quad at Crafton Hills College during the Days of Advocacy.

Urbanovich acknowledges the fear of public speaking and has found this platform to be a better setting for students to passionately deliver their messages while classmates cheer and music plays, creating a comfortable
and energized environment. This semester’s topics included, PolygamyDon’t Panic Over Coronavirus, and Is
Torture Acceptable When National Security is at Risk?.
