World Universities Debating Championship

This campaign ended on May 17, 2017, but you can still make a gift to William & Mary by clicking here!

Purpose: To provide support for W&M Debate Society members to participate at the World Universities Debating Championship.  

We will use these funds to send members of the William & Mary Debate Society to the Worlds Universities Debating Championship (WUDC), the largest and most prestigious international debate tournament on the planet. WUDC will be held over winter break 2017-2018 in Mexico City.

Two representatives of the Society will travel to Mexico City for one week of intense debating against college students from six continents. We will have the opportunity to test our skills against the best debaters in the world, and debate topics of international significance.  We will meet and debate against people from vastly different backgrounds and points of view. This international experience will help enrich the team, and we will bring this experience back to campus. 

Our budget does not cover travel and registration costs for the World Universities Debating Championship, but the value of international competition to us, and to The College of William & Mary abroad is substantial. Thanks for reading, and thank you in advance for your help.  

Goal Not Met: Less support for project.

Goal Exceeded: Additional support for future participation expenses.

Department: Theater, Speech, and Dance
