AMERICAN FORMAT PARLIAMENTARY DEBATING


The Debate Union participates in regional and national competition in events sponsored by the National Parliamentaty Debate Association (NPDA), the nation's largest intercollegiate debate organization. A debate team typically attends 9-12 tournaments during an academic year.
