The University of Miami Debate Team invites Middle School and High School students of all experience levels to participate in the 21st Hurricane Debate Institute offering instruction and practice in: Speech and Argument Skills, Public Forum, Policy Debate, Student Congress, and Lincoln-Douglas.
We believe that no other educational activity is as rewarding as participation in debate. Debate and competitive speaking are fun and exciting. Debaters learn best by debating. Speakers learn best by speaking. We work to create a comfortable environment where students can learn by doing, with the guidance of caring and experienced instructors. Our focus at the Hurricane Debate Institute is to engage personal development of logic, research abilities and independence that will create an effective debater and public speaker that can effectively communicate in any given situation.
