Salve Regina Toastmasters

Salve Regina Toastmasters is a community of Salve Regina faculty, staff and students, along with local residents who are looking to improve their public speaking skills. Toastmasters members develop and grow both personally and professionally and build the skills to express themselves in a variety of situations. Members open up a world of new possibilities: giving better work presentations, leading and participating in meetings more confidently, speaking more smoothly off the cuff, and handling one-on-one interactions with family, friends and colleagues more positively.

Salve Regina Toastmasters meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month from 4:45-6 p.m. in the McKillop Library, Room 109. Contact Myra Edelstein at (401) 862-2430 or edelstem@salve.edu with any questions relating to Toastmasters.

New Employee Orientation

The Office of Human Resources offers new employee orientation three times a year. During this event, new employees have the opportunity to meet other recently hired staff and become acquainted to the University’s policies, procedures and available services. In addition, various members of the Salve Regina community share important information related to their functional areas of responsibility.
