Our Aims and Values
The ANU Debating Society is dedicated to promoting a range of social and educational values. We host seminars and set debates around a number of important topics like gender and racial discrimination, economic inequality, technological development, and current political events. The aim of all this is to promote civic discourse that is both informed, and engaged. As such, debating encourages the development of not only critical thinking and speaking skills, but also the empathy to acknowledge and engage with different opinions, ideas and beliefs.
We are also looking at creating programs to engage with local high school students and to further expand our public events to include debates featuring academics and thought leaders in Australian society and politics.
For partners who share these aims and values, ANU has a lot to offer in return. Due to a large social media presence and strong relationship with official ANU media, we are able to effectively publicise our partnerships and grant significant exposure for our partners. For potential partners who are looking for engaged and knowledgeable students and graduates to join their teams, we have a weekly email that reaches over 100 of ANU’s best and most engaged students.
We also host multiple national level tournaments that attract between 50 to 150 of Australia’s best students, as well as students from universities as far as Cambridge and Oxford. We would be happy to have our partners be present and actively involved at these events.
