What Kind of Debate Do We Do?

The Liberty University Debate Team participates in intercollegiate policy debate. We participate in tournaments sanctioned by three national debate organizations. These three organizations are 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.
