Queens College Speech & Debate Society is the speech and debate program at Queens College.

Our colleagues and friends from our local college speech and debate community will be hosting the annual East Coast Early Bird Tournament Tournament on Saturday, September 24th, 2022. Our team will be hosting our annual Big Apple Debate Tournament on Sunday, September 25th, 2022.

These online tournaments will take place on Yaatly.com - a new and revolutionary virtual debating platform.

The team is looking for volunteers to judge speech and debate rounds. Our Big Apple Debate tournament will feature multiple formats of intercollegiate debate, which are International Public Debate (IPDA), National Parliamentary Debate (NPDA), and Lincoln-Douglas Debate (NFA-LD)

We will provide virtual training for those who are interested in judging debate rounds! Those who are judging must attend the training to participate!

We will hold a judge training on August and September via Zoom. Email us for the details!

I encourage you to visit our website at https://www.qcspeechsociety.com/ to find more about who we are and what we will be doing.

You do not need previous experience in public speaking, debate, or acting to volunteer. Just email me and I will be happy to receive you.

Our team will be collaborating with a number of college speech and debate programs to facilitate additional volunteer judging opportunities at speech and debate tournaments throughout Fall 2022 and Spring 2023.

Thanks.

Mission Statement

The mission of our team will be one that recognizes the importance of forensics by shaping eloquent and intellectual public speakers. We will accomplish this by engaging in acts of public discourse, rhetorical criticism, persuasion, research, and oral interpretation. ‚Äč This is a unique student-run organization where team members can develop public speaking skills through dedication, practice, and participation. In addition to competing within intercollegiate speech competitions, the QCSS will seek to sponsor, organize, and run speech and debate tournaments, community service projects, and fundraising that are in the best interests of public speaking. We welcome all who share our core values to come visit us at the Student Union and take part this in wonderful new chapter for the Queens College Speech Society.

Description

This is an academic student organization. As such, the team offers skills to Queens College students that are necessary to confidently and effectively communicate in any situation. This activity teaches students to research, write, and deliver valuable messages in a wide range of topics. By participating in this program, members of the QCSS will follow current events, engage in critical and rhetorical discourse, immerse into a wide-array of fiction and non-fiction literature, and will master persuasion at various intercollegiate speech and debate tournaments.
