The Liberty University Debate Team develops the critical thinking and verbal communication talents of its members so they can apply these skills at the highest level of national intercollegiate debate competition. The team seeks to equip its members for kingdom service in every field so that God’s name may be glorified to the ends of the earth.

What We Debate

The Liberty University Debate Team participates in intercollegiate policy debate. We participate in tournaments sanctioned by three national debate organizations: the American Debate Association, the Cross Examination Debate Association, and the National Debate Tournament. We debate the topic and resolution voted upon by member schools of the Cross Examination Debate Association. Intercollegiate policy debate emphasizes research, rapid integration and assimilation of information, and speaking quickly.
