Debate Forum

The West Point Policy Debate Team competes in Policy and Public Debates against colleges and universities across the United States.  The team also participates in the Annual Commander in Speech Competition against the Naval Academy and Air Force Academy.  During the 2018-19 Season Army teams won the Novice National Championship and placed 7th in the Cross-Examination Debate Associations (CEDA) National Sweepstakes.  For more information please visit the Army Debate Facebook page.

 

MISSION

Considered to be the “Dean’s Team,” the Department of Social Sciences sponsors the Debate team. The Debate Team spends hours preparing arguments by researching supporting evidence from a multitude of resources, refines their rhetorical skills, and excels within the Corps with many receiving both academic and military awards for their leadership. Each debater definitely embodies the ideals of what a soldier-scholar truly is, and each will be a great asset to the Army.
