For over a century, the UBC Debate Society has been a lively, competitive club dedicated to the art of debating and persuasive speaking. We offer students a wide variety of debating experiences, ranging from the casual ‘once-in-a-while’ speaker to the internationally competitive debater.

Your UBCDS experience is really what you make of it. In addition to offering an abundance of training resources, opportunities to practice, memorable (and subsidized!) competitions, we are both very social and inclusive.

Our regular meetings have ceased for the school year. However, we have organized summer meetings with SFU Debate.
Starting Tuesday May 26th, meetings will take place at 5:35pm on Tuesdays and Fridays at SFU Harbour Centre in Room 2235. Feel free to join the summer meeting Facebook group!
