About: The Utah Debate Commission is Utah’s premiere debate venue created in 2013 by media representatives, academic institutions, community leaders, and senior political figures in Utah. It is a consortium of state higher education institutions, media organizations, and business and civic leaders dedicated to creating an independent and nonpartisan system of public debates. The Commission is looked to as an example by other states as one of only four debate commissions of its kind in the United States.
“Southern Utah University looks forward to welcoming the Utah Debate Commission back to campus for the US House of Representatives debate this October,” said Dr. Jared Tippets, SUU Vice President for Student Affairs. “The Commission’s partnership with state institutions of higher education provides one-of-a-kind educational opportunities for our students and is essential to our mission of lifelong civic engagement.”
The SUU Center for Politics and Public Service is an interdisciplinary hub for leadership opportunities, experiential learning, citizenship education, humanitarian service and public policy research. This non-partisan center works to disseminate political information and spark debate about the ever-changing work of politics and issues that have an impact on the people of Utah and our nation.
