The MSU Speech & Debate Team was created to promote critical thinking, communication skills, and teamwork for students of MSU in any major.

For membership, refer to our list of events! All practices are open to new members at any time. We also post our new events on our social media.

The skills are introduced, reinforced, and encouraged by our coaches, Cheryl Chambers (IE) and Brett Harvey (Debate). The students' skills are significantly enhanced and tested through providing students with opportunities for co-curricular competition in debate, oratorical, and interpretation events. The mission of the program includes finding tournament opportunities that will both challenge students as well as provide opportunity for success.
