(Project will be launched January 2019)
Public Academic, is a project that is almost ready. It is a place where academics and other professionals will find speaking Gigs at local colleges and universities, all from a simple, efficient, and fast interface. These speaking opportunities are regularly made available by campus departments and organizations. The audiences will typically be college students, but are often also alumni, families, donors, and the general public.
For college departments and organizations, finding qualified speakers can be difficult, so we are providing a platform for them to list the many Gigs they have available. For the speakers, this will be the place to find them. All our speakers have at a minimum a Bachelor's degree from accredited institutions. By requiring this affiliation to well-recognized and accredited post-secondary institutions, we offer a higher level of speaker to the departments and organizations offering the speaking Gig, and we offer a higher quality speaking engagement for the speakers.
Our hope is that we become change agents by actually increasing the number of public speaking engagements on college campuses. We also want to increase the interaction between the public and colleges and universities. This interaction is mutually beneficial in that each learns from the other. We truly believe we can do this and we hope you will share in our vision.
