Just wanted to bump this position. George Mason will be looking for several graduate assistant positions. I've been coaching here for four years, and would love to chat with anyone interested.

Email me at if you have any questions!

Call for Hosts—Japanese Debaters in U.S.

The Committee for International Discussion and Debate of the National Communication Association is proud to announce the every-other-year tour by the Japanese National Debating Team, which will take place in February-March 2016.

Approximate Dates: February 20-March 15

If you are interested in hosting the Japanese debaters, please contact the tour director, Ted Sheckels of Randolph-Macon College, by no later than December 4! E-Mail bids are strongly preferred.

Ted Sheckels
Randolph-Macon College
Department of Communication Studies
204 E. Patrick St.

Ashland, VA 23005
(804) 752-7288

Fee: The fee for hosting the Japanese team is $800.00. Hosts also provide, at minimum, lodging, meals, and local transportation.

How to Bid: To place a bid to host the team, please send ALL of the following information.

School or Organization Name:

Contact Name and Address:
Must include holiday contact information

Telephone and Email:
Fall and Spring

Desired Dates:
Please include several dates in order of preference. Provide as wide a range of options as possible. The tour itinerary is scheduled based on geographic proximity to other sites. Limited date options will limit your chances of hosting.*

Prohibited Dates:
Please list dates that you absolutely cannot host.

Local Airport:
If there is more than one option, please indicate this. Trains are also occasionally an option, in certain cities.

Other Schools That Might Share the Stop:
Include contact information.

Suggestions for Prospective Hosts

Hosts over the years have built a variety of outstanding programs around the tour. Closer to the starting date of the tour, we ask you to provide us a brief summary of your plans so we can help other hosts schedule time for breaks, laundry, other essential needs.

Prior hosts have included:


·         Hosting the debate in conjunction with a major campus or community event, such as “International Week,” an alumni event, or communication symposium.

·         Guest lectures, presentations, or question and answer periods with classes on debate, rhetoric, or Japanese culture.

·         Visits to major (or minor) attractions of cultural or historical significance.

·         Sought opportunities for visiting debaters to interact with students, alumni, local dignitaries, legislators, high school students, or potential donors.


It is expected that all hosts will hold AT LEAST one public exhibition debate.  Hosts are also expected to provide feedback to CIDD at the conclusion of the visit, indicating activities held and an appropriate assessment of event attendance and academic/programmatic impact.

Volume Discounts

If more than one school in close geographic proximity (several schools within a metropolitan area or easy driving distance) organize collectively to host a leg of the tour, each school participating in that leg will receive a discount off their hosting fee--$100 if it’s two schools, $200 if it’s three or more. So, for example, if Northwestern, Loyola-Chicago, and Roosevelt University in Chicago bid to host in succession, each would pay $600. Multiple stops in adjacent communities reduce travel costs and allow hosts to economize through collaboration. The CIDD cannot provide additional discounts beyond the discounts provided above.

Please contact the tour director with any questions or ideas pertaining to this year's tour.
