The Kansas State University debate team participates in policy debate. This rigorous academic activity dramatically increases students' ability to identify problems, engage in extensive research and analysis of problems and to propose solutions to a variety of pressing international and domestic issues. Each year we debate the national policy debate topic. This year's topic is for the United States to reduce it's agricultural subsidies. Kansas State has a long tradition of success such as national championships in 1991 and 1993 and more recently finishing 5th in the nation last year.
