student speaking to audience during Braver Angels debate

UT Austin students, faculty, and staff are invited to join a respectful conversation touching all sides of a challenging issue. Braver Angels debates are not competitive, but a provide a deep experience of civil discourse. Conducted in a light parliamentary style, they teach students to engage with each other respectfully around difficult, polarizing issues. Students think together, listen carefully, and allow themselves to be touched and even changed by each other’s ideas. Participants emerge with greater empathy and appreciation for diversity of thought.

Sponsored by the Civitas Institute, this collegiate debate is free and brought to you by the College Debates and Discourse Alliance of Braver Angels, ACTA, and BridgeUSA, non-profit organizations that believe in the power of free expression and respectful exchange of ideas on America’s college campuses.
