Austin Cassity / Drury Debate Program

The Debate Program at Drury University, while only a year old, recently won first place at the National Debate Tournament. We spoke with the team to learn more about the group and its success.

Drury Debater Lindsey Duede takes a firm position on foreign relations in a mock debate during a practice session with her teammates. While this program been around a short time, there’s a keen sense of comradery between the roughly 10 group members.

Charles DeBerry is a professor of communication and the director of the Drury Debate program.
