Debate & Forensics

You are here

The Kansas Wesleyan University competitive Debate & Forensics Program was established to provide a place for those students who had enjoyed high school debate and forensics and wanted to continue that experience.  Today, that mission continues and has included students who have never competed in debate and forensics before college.  The mix has been successful as our squad has won 29 national championships and has been competitive each year in the regional and national tournaments we attend.

The KWU Debate & Forensics squad attends about twelve tournaments per year.  The tournaments include schools from throughout the United States, including yearly or biyearly visits to Louisiana, Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and California.
