Support The Bluegrass Debate Coalition
Founded in 2020, the Bluegrass Debate Coalition (BDC) is a community outreach program initiated by the University of Kentucky's award-winning Intercollegiate debate program hosted by the College of Communication and Information. The BDC strives to make competitive debate available to every elementary, middle school and high school student in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Research indicated that participation in debate has shown an increase in academic performance, empowering students' voices, and expands pathways for success, which includes greater acceptance into college. The BDC provides after-school debate classes, hosts competitive debate events, and works with schools and school districts in our communities to build up new and existing debate programs.
