The award-winning UNLV Debate Team, established in 2007, has quickly grown into a national powerhouse. UNLV's team is ranked eighth in the country and headed to the 2018 National Debate Tournament. The UNLV team was one of only 16 teams to receive an automatic invite to compete at the national championships.
UNLV’s squad consists of eight, two-person teams, along with coaches and support staff. Undergraduate students from any major can participate on the team and hone their skills in public speaking, critical thinking, research, and cross-examination. As the UNLV Debate Team continues to grow and rise in the rankings, students from across the country have taken notice. With your financial support, the team can provide scholarships to students, cover the cost of student travel to competitions, run summer debate camps for middle and high school students, and maintain overall debate operations funding to ensure that the program can perform at its best.
