Michigan State University Spartan Debate Institutes



The curriculum at SDI includes lectures, labs, library research and practice debates beginning as early as the second day of camp. Lab placements accommodate all skill levels, from a pre-novice section for pupils with no debate experience to one designed for those seeking to polish elite varsity skills. Two- and three-week sessions are first-come, first-served; admission is selective for the four-week session, which is followed by an optional, nine-day strategy forum.
