Aaron Blackman

Background

I graduated from Hastings College with a BA in Communication Studies and Psychology and received my Masters in Communication Studies from Kansas State University. I am also the Director of Forensics here at UNK. I competed in collegiate forensics for 4 years at Hastings College, was a graduate assistant coach for 2 years at Kansas State and an assistant coach for a year at UNK.

Philosophy

I believe that students should see me as their peer. I have the public speaking and workforce experience to realistically relate how public speaking will contribute to my students’ future lives and goals.  I know that with education and practice, any student can effectively speak in front of an audience.

Classes

I teach Fundamentals of Speech Communication, Advanced Public Speaking, and Intercollegiate Debate and Forensics.
