Speech and Parliamentary Debate Team

The Speech and Parliamentary Debate Team competes in a fast-paced, think-on-your-feet style of debate. Debate topics range from current events to governmental policy to intense moral dilemmas, all in a time-constrained environment that stresses rhetoric and clear delivery. Parliamentary debate teaches its members how to think, not what to think, by immersing cadets in the academic community of debate, reducing the divide between civilians and the military. The team competes in the American Parliamentary Debate Association along the East Coast and hosts various exhibition-style debates, most notably with the Royal Military College of Canada.
