Event Time and Date
The Pan-American Universities Debating Championship (PUDC) is a hemispheric debating championship for debating teams at universities in North, South and Central America and the Caribbean regions. The format of debate is the British Parliamentary (BP) format. The winners are crowned the Pan-American Champions.
Robust debate is not limited to any one language. To celebrate debate in the two dominant languages in the Western Hemisphere, Pan-Ams is a bilingual tournament. It offers two separate debating divisions: one English-speaking division and one Spanish-speaking division. Debates are conducted in the language of the respective division. Both divisions debate the same motions simultaneously.
