Forensics and Debate

Arguing the Point

The Kansas Wesleyan University competitive Forensics and Debate Program was established to provide a place for those students who enjoyed high school forensics and debate 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 now has won 49 national championships. The KWU squad has been competitive in about 12 regional and national tournaments each year, facing schools from across the United States. The team makes yearly or bi-annual trips to Louisiana, Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma and California to compete.
