Debate Society for Pre-Law Students

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 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.
