Debate Event

The Parliamentary Debate Team invites you to:

PUBLIC DEBATE: SHOULD CONGRESS REQUIRE EQUAL FUNDING FOR
MEN AND WOMEN IN UNIVERSITY SPORTS?

Monday, December 12, at 7:00 pm in Computer Science Building 3-115.

Title IX, part of the 1972 Educational Amendments, requires all federally funded
educational programs and activities to be equally accessible to men and women.
The University of Minnesota Parliamentary Debate Society (UMPDS) will sponsor
a public debate on this contentious law on Monday, December 12. Arguing for the
abolition of the requirement will be J. Robinson, the renowned University of
Minnesota wrestling coach, and UMPDS debater Tom Meyer. Defending the
requirement will be UMPDS debater and Women’s Studies major Rachel Jamison,
and UMPDS debater Michelle Hogler. Admission is free to the public, and all
attendees will have the opportunity to voice their opinions in the middle portion of
the debate.
