Speech and Debate Program Description

The Chico State Forensic Program is committed to advancing the benefits of speech and debate on a local, state, and national level. This is, first and foremost, an educational activity with emphasis on critical thinking, written and oral communication. On a local level, coaches and competitors will serve the campus by offering a Rookie Tournament each semester in order to give a maximum number of CSU students the opportunity to compete. In the greater Chico community, the team will host a debate and sponsor a workshop, which will benefit K-12 students and/or teachers. Regionally, the CSUC forensic team will establish and continue an active commitment to both the expansion and revitalization of speech and debate in the Northern California Forensics Association. Nationally, the team will make every effort to send competitors to key tournaments across the country, establishing CSUC as a nationally respected forensic program. The out-of-region tournaments will be selected each year in order to maximize student exposure to the top competitors, universities, and coaches in the country.

Speech and Debate Program Description

The Stanford Debate Society is a student-run program with a sizeable endowment each year for expenses, which covers all tournament costs, including traveling.  In years past the Stanford Debate team has had a very successful program, including clearing one of the only all-freshman teams at the National Debate Tournament.  The Stanford Debate Team is actively working to recruit top-quality high school competitors who wish to further their policy debate career at the NDT/CEDA level as well as new students interested in learning policy debate. The Stanford Debate Society presently travels to parliamentary tournaments on both the east and west coast.  In past years the Stanford Debate Team has traveled to all of the major NDT tournaments. If there is student interest in policy debate, it is likely the student-board will vote to renew sufficient funding for a top-level NDT/CEDA program.  These negotiations are already taking place.

Are scholarships available at the school?

Stanford University does not allow academic or talent scholarship (except athletics) of any kind.  The University,however, awards 60% of its students financial aid and is consistently ranked as one of the most generous private institutions in the country in terms of financial aid.  Financial aid is awarded on a need-based system.

The Claremont Consortium offers a unique model for American higher education. Officially born on October 14, 1925, the cluster of independent and cooperative colleges, generally based on the design of Oxford University, is an alliance that is now widely recognized as one of the nation’s greatest centers of liberal arts education. Seven educational institutions now constitute The Claremont Colleges: Pomona College, founded in 1887; Claremont Graduate University, 1925; Scripps College, 1926: Claremont McKenna College, 1946; Harvey Mudd College, 1955; Pitzer College, 1963; and the Keck Graduate Institute for Applied Life Sciences, 1997.  Student enrollment for the consortium is more than 5400 full-time students. Each year, students take roughly 6000 courses at a campus other than their home campus-about 16 percent of the total courses offered. This cross-registration is one of the Consortium’s most remarkable qualities. Students literally get seven colleges for the price of one and an array of course offerings found only in the most select universities.  The Claremont Colleges are now nationally and internationally renowned for excellence. Several of the Colleges are consistently rated among the very best in the nation. This has helped draw students from across the country and around the world.

Speech and Debate Program Description

The Liberty Debate Team began in 1980 at Liberty University, then Liberty Baptist College.  The goals of Liberty Debate are to compete at the highest levels of intercollegiate debate while also maintaining an active Christian witness. Liberty competes in policy debate as a member of the National Debate Tournament, the American Debate Association, and the Cross Examination Debate Association.  Since 1980, Liberty Debate has experienced rapidly expanding success.  Liberty Debate finished in the top twenty in the National Debate Tournament rankings in 1989 and qualified for the National Debate Tournament for the first time in that same year.  Since that time, Liberty has consistently finished in the top five in the NDT and the American Debate Association rankings.  In 1995 and 1996, Liberty won two national championships in debate by finishing first in both the NDT and ADA rankings.  Liberty has been the national champions in the ADA for the last five consecutive years (1995-1999). Liberty has won the NDT National Rankings Championship four times in 1995, 1996, 1999, and 2000.  Liberty has also consistently qualified for the National Debate Tournament since 1989 and has advanced to the elimination rounds of the National Tournament each year since 1995.  Liberty has competed with success at all levels of debate boasting tournament victories in each of the divisions of debate and creating tradition along the way.  In 1997 a Liberty Varsity Team won the ADA National Championship tournament, and a Liberty Junior Varsity team won the Junior Varsity National Championship.  The Liberty Novice teams have won the Wake Forest University Novice Tournament in all but one year of its existence.  In 1996, Liberty hosted the American Debate Association National Tournament and, in 1997, Liberty hosted the National Debate Tournament.

School Description:

Pace University is a diverse institution with nearly 14,000 students. For 92 years, bright, motivated and talented men and women have walked out of Pace’s many doors, degrees in hand and have ventured into the world prepared for the challenges of each passing decade. Every year curriculum offerings in the schools and colleges are modified to meet the changing needs of ambitious and knowledgeable students. Pace University draws its strength from being a unified institution that offers students a choice of three locations, each with its own distinctive atmosphere, ranging from the quintessential urban (New York City) to small city (White Plains) to suburban/ rural (Pleasantville/Briarcliff). The New York City campus, located in the heart of the civic and financial center of the city, is impressive not only in its physical attributes, but as an intellectual and cultural focal point for one of New York City’s most dynamic and revitalized areas. The interaction between campus and community serves to benefit both. At Pace’s Midtown Center graduate and undergraduate courses are offered in day and evening sessions. Those who work or live in midtown Manhattan have found that this facility offers them flexibility and convenience.  The Pleasantville/Briarcliff campus in mid-Westchester County is set on 200 acres of rolling countryside where the University flourishes as a preeminent institution of higher education offering a broad range of undergraduate degree programs, and graduate programs in nursing. Throughout the years since 1906, Pace has grown along with the talents of those who comprise what is affectionately known as the “Pace community.” For further information the Pace website is located at: http://www.pace.edu Applicants for admission can apply online or call (212) 346-1200 to obtain an application.

The Penn Speech and Debate team, through the oversight of the Debate Council, sponsors a high school tournament in late January called the Liberty Bell Classic.  Events that are offered at this tournament are Original Oratory, Oral Interpretation, Dramatic Interpretation, Extemporaneous Speaking, Duo Interpretation, Oratorical Declamation, Lincoln-Douglas debate, and Student Congress.  Last year, competitors from seven states and 55 schools traveled to the Penn campus for competition.  In addition, there were more than 120 Lincoln-Douglas entries and over 500 individual event entries the 1998 Liberty Bell Classic.  The Liberty Bell Classic is one of the largest tournaments on the East Coast, and the team puts a lot of effort to run it efficiently.

Speech and Debate Program Description

The William Pitt Debating Union is a student organization involved in a wide range of debating activities, including two-person intercollegiate policy debate, international parliamentary debate, and various forms of public debate.  One of the oldest organizations of its kind in the nation, the Union is directly affiliated with the Department of Communication at the University of Pittsburgh.   The bedrock philosophy of the William Pitt Debating Union is that argument can educate as well as emancipate.  By providing  for students a forum to sharpen their critical thinking skills, deepen their understanding of contemporary political issues, and hone their abilities as actors in the public realm, the Union actualizes its educational mission.  By spurring robust, inclusive debate and discussion in the public community, the Union performs its politically emancipatory function, serving as a catalyst for reasoned public dialogue on key issues facing society.  Much of the Union’s energy in pursuing these tasks comes from a team culture which places a premium on group solidarity and cooperation.  Such cooperation is vital to cultivation of a pedagogically rich learning environment, competitive success in intercollegiate contests, and to political mobilization in defense of open public argument.  In their activities, members of the Union are expected not only to contribute in a dynamic and cooperative way to these goals, but to consistently meet the highest standards of integrity in research, teamwork and advocacy.
