CLAREMONT COLLEGES DEBATE UNION
Calendar – Intercollegiate Debate, Professional Events, and Educational Outreach
2021-22 (Version August 21)

• Events include the following formats: BP (British Parliamentary), SJD (Social Justice Debates), L/D (Lafayette Debates), PDP (Public Debate Program, proprietary middle school high school debate outreach format)), SPJ (Society of Professional Journalists), IHL (International Humanitarian Law).
• All events are in English, except for select competitions with Spanish language divisions.
• Conferences featuring paper, panel, multimedia, and other competitions, if available, are also included here.
