Debate Team

USF Debate Team

The USF Debate Team is an exciting organization on campus with the goal of expanding the role of public debate and advocacy at USF and in the community. This includes public debates about contemporary social and political issues, competition at intercollegiate tournaments, and a commitment to promoting ethical and engaged public communication for the USF community. 

The team meets weekly for practice and scheduling, and students can earn up to 4 units of credit for their participation.


If you are interested in joining the team as an undergraduate or graduate student, or if you would like to partner with us to host a debate event, please contact Alexis Litzky for more information:
