CSU-Pueblo Forensics Team hosts third Rocky Mountain Cooperative June 25-July 1

PUEBLO -- The Colorado State University-Pueblo Forensics Team will host its 3rd and largest Rocky Mountain Debate Cooperative (RMC) on campus June 25-July 1.

Participants will learn about National Parliamentary Debate Association (NPDA) style from some of the best debate coaches in the country. This year, coaches hail from Arkansas State University, Colorado College, CSU-Pueblo, Concordia University-Irvine, University of Colorado, Boulder, University of Nevada, Reno, and the University of Utah.

CSU-Pueblo Director of Forensics Kathryn Starkey has added a new distance learning option for students to this year’s camp.

 “It often can be difficult to find travel fees for students during the summer, so we’re offering a Google Hangout version of camp to increase accessibility,” Starkey said. “We have a great turnout for that option, so I’m excited it was well received by the debate community.”

The RMC will host students representing 14 different institutions for the intensive five-day camp. During the duration of the camp, students will hear 15 different lectures, participate in almost a dozen practice debates, and compete in a tournament to crown a camp champion.

Participating students represent the following institutions:

Arkansas State University, Jonesboro

Colorado State University-Pueblo

Concordia University-Irvine

Grand Canyon University

Mount Hood Community College 

Red Rocks Community College

Rice University

San Diego State University

Santa Rosa Junior College
