Arizona Debate Institute
July 15-28, 2018 online Institute
July 29-August 5, 2018 in-person Institute
The Arizona Debate Institute (ADI) is the nation’s largest and longest-running college policy summer institute. 2018 marks the 41st anniversary of its founding. The ADI is run by the ASU Forensics Team, a division of the Hugh Downs School of Human Communication at Arizona State University.
During the online segment of the institute, ADI will provide lectures, conduct and review research assignments, and engage students through question and answer sessions. Lectures will be recorded and uploaded behind a firewall for students to review as they have time.
The in-person segment of the Institute will be held on the Tempe campus and will be dedicated to practice debates, rebuttal re-dos, block-writing, and the tournament. Every student will receive at least 10 debates between the practices and the tournament.
