The UBC Debate Society is committed to the education and skill development of its members. It is our mission to make sure that every member is given the opportunity to succeed in competitive debate, and our training program is one way we seek to accomplish that. We’ve compiled resources that provide some introduction, explanation, and illustration to university level debate.
