Malcolm X Debate Team

The University of Louisville Malcolm X Debate Program engages in targeted recruitment, primarily of first-generation African American students. As an intercollegiate policy debate program, our curriculum and research practices are geared towards the development, critical analysis, and implementation of policies across a variety of fields.  We teach students to engage in social justice-oriented advocacy by providing them with the skills they need to analyze and change policies that so often disadvantage the communities from which they come.

The Malcolm X Debate Program invests in the whole student. We are dedicated to helping students figure out their career goals, while making sure that they are on track to pursue those goals when they leave our program. Our Academic Success Plan (ASP) monitors students’ progress and proactively identifies challenges, allowing us to effectively obtain any needed resources. We also assist our students in pursuing additional opportunities such as; acquiring funding to teach debate/study abroad, as well as, various career specific internships. 

We are reaching out to the larger community to ask for donations to help us sustain and grow this invaluable program.  Our goals include generating financial support to travel to the various debate competitions and increasing the number of full-time staff, which would allow us to increase the number of students we can serve.  Any little bit helps and we would be forever grateful for those who decide to help further our mission to bring debate to historically underrepresented students!
