K-State Debate provides students with an opportunity to represent their school in fierce intellectual competition against students from across the country.
K-State Debate participates in both Policy Debate (NDT/CEDA) and British Parliamentary / Worlds style debate. We welcome debaters of all experience and skill levels.
The K-State Debate team has an experienced coaching staff that is dedicated to helping students find their voice. K-State Debaters get advanced skills training in public speaking, argumentation, research, critical thinking, teamwork, advocacy and more. These skills set up K-State Debaters for a lifetime of success. K-State Debate alumni have gone on to become successful lawyers, professors, entrepenuers, business owners and leaders in a variety of professional fields.
The Debate Team travels to tournaments both nationally and internationaly. K-State Debate is a Departmentally Sponsored Organiation and travel with the debate team is financially covered by the university. Addtionally, there are scholarship opportunities available for dedicated team members.
