Speech and Debate Forum

The ULM Speech and Debate Forum offers experiences in both speech and performance. We also publish a Traveling Scholar series and the Bill and Linda Rambin public debate forums. these series create opportunity for students, faculty, and the community to engage with experts in the discipline. Students can compete in two styles of debate: International Public Debate Association (IPDA) and National Parliamentary Debate Association (NPDA). Students may also compete in any or all of the American Forensic Association (AFA) speech events. Membership is open to all regularly-enrolled undergraduate students at ULM. Dr. Lesli Pace (pace@ulm.edu) is the advisor.
