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.

Recently URI speakers have addressed the East Providence Rotary Club on oil spills, the Cranston Rotary Club about the State Crime Lab, and the Bristol Rotary Club on biotechnology. In September, speakers will address senior citizens at Hamilton House in Providence about the URI Coastal Institute, the North Kingstown Rotary Club about ocean engineering, and the Woonsocket Rotary Club on "What's new at URI?"

For more information or to schedule a speaker, contact Todd McLeish in the URI Department of Communications/News Bureau at 401-874-7892 or
