BoulderTalks (formerly BuffsSpeak) is a student-centered program for CMCI and CU Boulder undergraduates interested in bridging classroom learning with communication practices. Students are encouraged to develop their communicative skills through already existing activities, as well as new ones not yet imagined.

We focus on developing communication skills related to argumentation and debate, discussion, event organization, fundraising, persuasion, project management, speechwriting, speech coaching and storytelling (spoken, written and digital). This program plans, organizes, and publicizes undergraduate co-curricular events and activities where students lead with their voice.

Some already existing activities include: TEDxCU, StoryTalk, PodTalks and discussions about emerging public issues.

Jeff Motter is the faculty advisor.
