Programs

Willamette University Debate Union

The Willamette University Debate Union offers three interrelated programs: Intercollegiate Debate, Public Debate, and International Debate.

The “bookend program” of the Willamette University Debate Union is its intercollegiate debate program. Virtually all students who pass through the Debate Union will participate in this program. Students from the Intercollegiate Debate program can apply to participate in the International Debate Program and the Public Debate Program. In rare instances, students who do not participate in Intercollegiate Debate may be chosen for the International and Public Advocacy Programs.
