Students in the Towson University Forensics program participate in both speech and debate activities. Students who compete for the team travel to local, regional and national tournaments to engage in individual events, parliamentary debate and/or policy debate. We also offer students the opportunity to perform speeches and exhibition debates for the campus and local community in the form of performance showcases and public debates.
The 2015-16 Debate Team Season
The Towson University Debate Team has plans for an exciting 2015-2016 academic year ahead. All competitive national debate travel will take a one-year hiatus as the team engages in outreach and leadership development opportunities in Baltimore and the region.
A few of the activities planned this year include:
Conducting public debates on campus and in the region
Participating as judges and coaches in high school debate tournaments
Working with regional Urban Debate Leagues
Partnering with teams from other institutions
Exploring internships, study abroad, community service, and other experiences that will contribute to future career paths
We look forward to seeing our award-winning team effect the positive change in the world that we all wish to see.
