Policy Debate's Return! 2010 A. Craig Baird Invitational at Iowa December 4th-6th
Hoosier policy debate will attend their first tournament in Iowa against foes representing multiple confrences, including the Big 10. IU policy debaters have spent their fall semester rigurously building a collection of arguments to prepare for future deliberative battelfields. The 2010-2011 college policy topic asks the question of whether the United States should increase the number of American immigration visas. The topic was released at the end of the month of July. College debate teams from around the nation have scoured the libraries stacks and digital databases to predict and write every possible argument. Like a football coach drawing plays on the white board, coaches and debaters engage in thought experiments to produce the best strategic methods for debating either side of the immigration visa debate. Playing catch up this year, IU is now ready to engage our competitors as we begin our season. After Iowa multiple major tournaments have been scheduled at the University of Kentucky, Georgia University, until the season's end at The University of North Texas i mid-march. Indiana will also host their first college tournament in nearly two decades in mid-February. These are exciting times to be a hoosier.
