Oxford Debates

The Christ College Oxford Debates enable first-year students to apply their emerging skills of academic research, critical analysis, and oral argument to significant, controversial public issues.

The Christ College Oxford Debates, held each spring are the culmination of the honors college’s first-year students’ experience. Student teams debate international issues, national concerns, regional matters, and campus topics. At the conclusion of each debate, the moderator instructs audience members to “vote their minds” by leaving the assembly hall through a door marked “PRO” or through a door marked “CON.”
