Join Mason Debate!


A Rich History...

         In 1975, Dr. Warren Decker established the GMU Debate Team at the Fairfax, Virginia campus of George Mason University. Since then, GMU has had countless success, boasting one of the strongest novice and junior varsity squads in the country and nationally competitive varsity teams each year. 

A Competitive Legacy...

          The past three years, GMU Debate has stayed in the top two spots in the both the National Debate Tournament and Cross Examination Debate Association National Ranking Championships.  ​We continue to grow and rise in success, and hope that you enjoy following us on our journey!

A Welcoming Family...


        Every year, we look for Mason students who can join our team to help us reach new levels of success. Beyond success, we also seek students that will help continue to make our team environment one of friendship and family.
