The Global Debate at NYU page serves as a portal for judges, competitors, alumni and potential competitors to learn about events and expectations.
As an institution of higher learning, NYU strives to weave the life of the mind into all its activities, not foster it only within the classrooms four walls. An emphasis on being well-informed, on being able to articulate one's own views, on listening to the views of others, and on engaging in reasoned discourse should be just as evident in our residence halls, our common rooms, our lounges, and dining facilities as they are in our classrooms and lecture halls, and embraced just as fervently in Buenos Aires or Tel Aviv as in New York. The NYU Global Debate Program will reaffirm our emphasis on civil discourse and engage NYU students around the globe in thinking and discussing an important, pressing issue.
The Global Debate Program begins each fall semester with the formation of teams, with students registering for the competition. NYU faculty, graduate students and representatives from the Bickel and Brewer Foundation will serve as judges of the debates.
In the spring semester, prelim rounds are held in February on the New York campus and through the use of video teleconferencing to reduce the field to a "sweet 16." The final rounds on the NYC campus will culminate in the Championship Debate each spring and an awards ceremony with tuition prizes to the top 16 teams.
