The mission of MNUDL is to empower students through competitive academic debate to become engaged learners, critical thinkers, and active global citizens who are effective advocates for themselves and their communities.
The Minnesota Urban Debate League (MNUDL) is a program of Augsburg University which provides resources and programming to support competitive academic debate in Twin Cities high schools and middle schools. Currently, MNUDL serves more than 1,200 students at 40 partner schools and has seen sustained growth in student participation since its inception in 2004.
Would you recommend Minnesota Urban Debate League?
I volunteered last year and I did not have judging experience. I went to one of their judge training classes and everything else was pretty simple. I still have contact with them today and plan to volunteer this year. I fully recommend this program to everyone.
I strongly believe this non profit organization is beneficial for the students. I have volunteered for years now and I have seen how the kids have grown. They are now more self confident and their public speaking skills have improved. Everyone is really nice and it is a nice atmosphere to be in! I have learned a lot just by volunteering as a judge.
