Use your Spanish skills to make a difference! Judge Spanish Debate. No prior experience needed.
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!

The Great Colleges to Work For survey officially closed on March 12th. THANK YOU to all who participated and provided their feedback. We appreciate your engagement and your voice. This year, we exceeded 2016’s all-time high participation rate by one percentage point and reached an outstanding overall survey response of 74%!
Over the summer, we will receive the results of the 2018 survey. Our plan is to share the data with the campus and, where applicable, individual departments and divisions, next fall. As with previous years, the survey results will help us to identify areas where opportunities for improvement exist and to establish plans to support those improvements.
Again, thank you for your participation and sharing your experience at Augsburg!
