Welcome to the website of the University of Utah Speech and Debate Team. We focus on three main activities: sponsoring public debates; high school outreach; and hosting and competing in intercollegiate competitions.

Founded by John R. Park in 1869, the University of Utah’s Speech & Debate Team is one of the oldest teams in the western United States. We have a long tradition of competitive success. In 2014 and 2015, the University of Utah finished in the top 10 nationally.
