The Minnesota Urban Debate League is a nonprofit of Augsburg University. We provide debate programming to over 750 students in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, including our nearly 100 Spanish Debate League students.
We’re looking for debate judges for 3 tournaments this spring:
Wednesday April 19th – 3:30 to 7:30 PM
Wednesday May 3rd – 3:30 to 7:30 PM
Wednesday May 16th – 3:30 to 7:30 PM
Judges will observe rounds conducted completely in Spanish, determine winners for each round, and provide comments to help students improve their reading, critical thinking and Spanish language skills.
Participation in debate helps students improve their academic skills, including reading comprehension and critical thinking, and increases their confidence. Be a part of creating these outcomes for our Spanish Debate League students!

Each year more than 325 students, out of a student body of 3500+, receive scholarships that were started by individual and corporate donors who care about students, learning, and value the unique attributes of an Augsburg education. Each year we ask these students to share their Augsburg experience with these donors as a way to demonstrate that the donations are making a difference.
Thank you to all 106 scholarship recipients who completed the survey last week and a big thank you to all scholarship donors for paying it forward. Go Auggies!

Unfortunately, ICE is currently threatening to remove him from this country and we must come together as a community to stand by him and his family during this difficult time.
Please check out his GoFundMe campaign and share this link on your social media platforms! Thank you for supporting Professor Wanyama!
