This event gives opportunity for competing schools to develop publicity and also promote team building among each other through an organized debate competition.

Meanwhile, the event, which will officially start on Monday, June 19, 2023 had an opening ceremony on Wednesday, June 14, 2023 in the CSUC Auditorium.

The President assured CSUC’s willingness to collaborate with them and any other institution that wish to work with CSUC to build the nation’s human capacity.

Prof. Afrane urged the participants to prepare well by conducting relevant research to meet the overall requirements of a standard academic debate. He ended his address by reaffirming CSUC’s long-standing promise to offer a full tuition scholarship to the leader of the winning school to enrol in any of the programmes currently run by the University College.IMG_9820
