JMU Policy Debate
Welcome to the James Madison University Policy Debate homepage!
If you have any questions or wish to join, please contact our Director of Debate Mike Davis.
If you have debated before or even if you have not, joining the squad is a great way to become involved at James Madison University. You will not only have fun and be a part of one of the nation’s top debate programs but you can also work on your own public speaking, research, critical thinking, leadership and teamwork skills.
Our debate program has two main activities, policy debate and public debate. The JMU Debate policy team is for those of you looking for a competitive activity that includes traveling, in-depth research, rigorous practice, critical thinking and problem-solving. We compete against any and all universities and colleges across the country; from the ivy leagues to state schools to community colleges.
The Madison Debate Society is our public debate organization. This is for students who might not be interested in the competition of the debate team but enjoy political discussion, public deliberation and community service. We host public debates each semester and the Madison Cup every spring.
