A dedicated group of students participates in the debate and speech teams at Simpson
each year. These students spend many hours prepping, practicing and debating each other prior to regional and national competitions in addition to their coursework and other extracurricular involvement.
The teams are coached by Spencer Waugh, an instructor in the Communications & Media Studies department with a long history of forensics success.
In Spring 2014, Simpson College will host a national competitive speech and debate competition. More information about the competition will be posted as it becomes available.

Simpson is also pleased to host an annual summer Debate Camp for high school students.
Interested students are encouraged to contact Spencer Waugh.
