The award-winning UNLV Debate Team was established in 2007. It has quickly grown into a national powerhouse, consistently ranked among the best debate teams in the nation. The team competes in debate tournaments held at universities around the America, and they consistently win both regional and national caliber debate tournaments. The team specializes in rapid-fire competitive NDT/CEDA policy debate. Undergraduate students from any major can join the team and hone their skills in public speaking, critical thinking, research, and cross-examination. Debate team alumni work in higher education, law, politics, and the public and private sectors. The UNLV Debate Team is committed to creating an informed citizenry through public argument and civic discourse, and seeks to improve access to policy debate programs for students across all socio-economic and diverse backgrounds. The team mentors local middle and high school students every year at a summer debate camp. Throughout the school year, the team also advises and coaches hundreds of local middle and high school debaters. The debate team is housed in the UNLV Communication Studies Department in the Greenspun College of Urban Affairs.
