List of College Programs

Here’s a list of college programs that participate in at least one kind of intercollegiate speech or debate. The webmaster wouldn’t have been able to complete this list without the help of two of his former student workers, Malorie Kuzma and Jessica Benham. The list will be updated on a frequent basis. Names without links don’t have websites of which we’re aware. This list was last updated July 12, 2014.

Before the list: Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can I add or edit my own information? Contact the webmaster – his email appears in the footer of this webpage.
  • What kinds of forensics are listed?
    • Individual Events (IE)
    • National Forensic Association Lincoln-Douglas Debate (NFA-LD). LD is one-on-one policy debate on a set resolution – for more information, see the NFA website.
    • Parliamentary Debate: The table will list either APDA or NPDA debate if known. APDA (American Parliamentary Debate Association) is two-on-two, typically student-run debate – for more information, see the APDA website. NPDA (National Parliamentary Debate Association) is two-on-two, typically coach-led debate – for more information, see the NPDA website. Schools listed as just parli either do not compete at the NPDA National tournament, or tend to compete in parli regionally or at other national tournaments (Pi Kappa Delta, etc.). Since there are myriad parli styles, I thought it was important to make the distinctions.
    • International Parliamentary Debate Association (IPDA) Debate – both one-on-one and two-on-two, extemporaneous debate with cross-examination – for more information, see the IPDA website.
    • National Educational Debate Association (NEDA) – two-on-two policy debate, with parameters on debater evidence and speed – for more information, see the NEDA website.
    • Policy debate – Traditional two-on-two evidence-based debate with cross-examination.
    • British debate (BP) – Four two-on-two teams. Extemporaneous debate similar to American parli with less emphasis on technical arguments and a higher emphasis on delivery.
    • Public Forum (PF): Two-on-two debate originally started on the high school level.
    • Readers’ Theater (The schools listed are either 2-year schools that are known to do RT, or are ARTa members)
  • Why are some schools listed twice? Their university’s (or department’s) structure is such that the teams operate independently. For example, Cedarville University competes in individual events and NPDA parli. They have separate coaches and separate budgets. Thus, they are listed separately in the table.

The webmaster apologizes for the brokenness of the page. I’m currently debugging new functionality for the list of schools. Problems are long load times and a difficulty rendering the page in certain mobile browsers (I have confirmed this error on Safari and Chrome for the iPad). The problems don’t occur on Firefox for Mac 30. I’m working to fix those problems, and they hopefully will be fixed shortly. (The content management system makes it hard to duplicate an existing page as a draft without changing URL’s.)
