We have a long history of success amongst intercollegiate debating societies in North America, and proudly represent Columbia University across the country and the world. The Columbia Debate Team is an institution dedicated to helping individuals express themselves, improve discourse, and enact positive change. Representing students with a wide variety of passions, our team is a home for thinkers of all backgrounds.
