Support the Speech and Debate Program

Support the Speech and Debate Program

The UNL Speech & Debate Team was created in 1871 and is the oldest student activity on campus.  The forensics team has a long and storied history of success.  Since joining the Big Ten in 2011 the team has won the conference tournament every year and finished as the highest ranked in the conference at our national tournaments.  Since joining the conference the team has placed in the top 10 in the nation each year in speech at the American Forensics Association’s National Individual Events Tournament and in debate at the National Forensics Association’s National Tournament.  The success of these students would not be possible without the support of our alumni and friends. In order to survive and thrive in the future the team needs your support to bolster scholarships and  provide travel funds.
