KINGSTON, R.I. -- August 18, 2000 -- More than 170 experts from among
the University of Rhode Island's faculty, staff and administration are available
to speak to community groups about a wide variety of subjects through the
URI Speakers Bureau.
Speakers are available at no charge to address day or evening meetings
on such subjects as business issues, oceanography, healthy living, gardening,
wildlife and the environment, history, forensic science, and dozens of others.
Presentations can be tailored to meet the needs of the organization and
usually are a combination of lecture, discussion and Q&A.

Bristol Rotary Club on biotechnology. In September, speakers will address
senior citizens at Hamilton House in Providence about the URI Coastal Institute,
