The UBCDS is a non-profit organization.  Our mission is to spread the skill of debate and public speaking and develop a community of intelligent and critical citizens.

We use our funds to subsidize our members’ flights to competitive tournaments as well as run tournaments of our own at UBC.  We have developed a tiered system of donation with consequent advertisement-related rewards for each step.  If you are interested in partnering with us and want to know more about what we can offer you as well as our financial situation, please email our Marketing Director, Linda Huang at
