The Hart House Debating Club provides a space for University of Toronto students to hone their speaking skills and explore new perspectives, attitudes, and ideas. It aims to help students develop the tools necessary to express themselves as well as the confidence to both defend and question their beliefs.
The Debating Club sends students to compete at regional, national, and international debating competitions. These competitions provide students with the opportunity to represent their university and compete at the highest levels. In turn, they share the skills they acquire at competitions with other students. .
In sum, the Hart House Debating Club is concerned with fostering spirited dialogue and free expression. By helping students develop their communication and reasoning skills, it hopes to encourage an atmosphere of pluralism where all voices are heard.
