Our Mission & Team Philosophy
We are committed to an interdisciplinary approach to debate that promotes critical thinking. The DFU serves Dartmouth’s mission of supporting the vigorous and open debate of ideas within a community marked by mutual respect in co-curricular activity.
Our team philosophy emphasizes:
- Listening and researching arguments of all types with respect.
- A team environment that challenges students intellectually while supporting their growth.
- Trusting one another in our collective efforts to develop as members of the Dartmouth community, debate community, and beyond.
