About us

The American Parliamentary Debate Association is an intercollegiate debate association that schedules over forty tournaments per year and features membership from dozens of colleges and universities across the United States. The principal goal of the organization is to facilitate debate and give the maximum number of students the ability to develop public speaking and analytical skills, express their ideas, and meet similarly driven individuals from different universities. Although APDA historically has been primarily an organizing body, we hope to use additional funding to bring college debate to more colleges throughout the United States.
