2022-23 Tournament, Events, Outreach Calendar


Calendar – Intercollegiate Debate, Professional Events, and Educational Outreach
2022-23 (Version August 22)

• Many events are not confirmed as colleges and universities adjust schedules from online to in-person or in the other direction. Some are listed as online and others in-person but both are tentative, depending on health and safety issues in Claremont and events sites. Please be aware of updates.

• Color-coded events include the following formats: BP (British Parliamentary), SJD (Social Justice Debates), L/D (Lafayette Debates), PDP (Public Debate Program, proprietary middle school high school debate outreach format), IHL (International Humanitarian Law).

• All events are in English, except for select competitions with Spanish language divisions.

• Conferences featuring paper, panel, multimedia, and other competitions, if available, are also included here as PUBLIC/PRO (public and professional events).

• All members of the Debate Union are required to attend and support debate outreach, including the PDP outreach championships, scheduled for Fall 2022 and Spring 2023.
