(Project launches January 2019)
Public Academic, is a place where academics and other professionals can 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 are typically college students, but often also alumni and the general public.
For college departments and organizations, finding qualified speakers can be difficult. We provide a completely free platform for them to list the many Gigs they have available. For the speakers, this is the place to find them.
All our speakers have at a minimum a Bachelor's degree from an accredited US institution. We feel that by requiring these we can offer a higher level of speaker to the departments and organizations offering the speaking Gig, and we offer a higher quality speaking environment for the speakers.

Ultimately, our goal is to increase the number of public speaking opportunities on all college campuses. This in turn increases the interaction between the public and campuses. We believe that this is a mutually beneficial way to help people at all levels learn from each other.
The platform is almost ready. In the mean-time, sign up for our newsletter to stay informed about this exciting platform as well as the many other exciting projects we are working on.
