Welcome to the Shepherd University Debate and Forensics Team’s homepage!

The Team is coming off a First Place finish for Team Debate at the 2016 State Tournament (run by the WVIFA). The Team competes in numerous tournaments each year and has several impressive finishes in all recent tournaments.  We also have had individuals earn First-Place finishes in events such as Lincoln-Douglas Debate, Parliamentary Debate, Rhetorical Criticism/Communication Analysis, Extemporaneous Speaking, Poetry Interpretation, and Informative Speaking.

Our Team is open to any Shepherd undergraduate student, regardless of major or year in school.
