Join in the Global Conversation – NYU Bickel and Brewer Global Debate Program

The College of Arts and Science is proud to announce the second annual NYU Bickel & Brewer Global Debate Program which promotes civil discourse among students in preparation for leadership and service.

The Global Debate Program, coordinated by the College is currently accepting applications from students who wish to participate. ┬áTeams will be formed this semester and they will start researching the topic:”Resolved: Freedom of the press should not extend to state secrets”

In the spring semester knock-out rounds (in NYC and through video to accommodate students abroad) will reduce the field to a “Sweet 16.” The final rounds take place in April and culminate in an awards ceremony with scholarship prizes (up to $5000) to members of the top teams.
