The Frederick Douglass Institute for Intercultural Research is currently forming 5 teams to compete in the Douglass Debate Society, a debate society that exists across the 14 universities of Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. There are 6-8 slots open for students who would like to represent IUP in the Douglass Debate Society.
No debate experience is necessary, but a commitment to working hard to become an effective debater and to compete at the state level is. The IUP teams meet weekly on Tuesdays, 6:30-7:30 pm, to train and practice.
Anyone who is interested should email Dr. Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org for an invitation to joint the first meeting on Sept. 29. Please contact Dr. Watson is you have any questions or would like additional information.
