My name is Alexander Pabon and I am senior at North Central College. I have been competing in IE and various forms of Debate for my four years in college. My love of the activity has led me to use debate as my topic for my undergraduate Honors College thesis. I am asking for as many competitors, coaches, judges, and alumni as possible across multiple formats (NDT-CEDA, NPDA, IPDA, NFA-LD) to participate.
The survey will ask you to give your opinion on many possible issues of controversy in the debate community. The survey will not ask you to give any identifying information. It was approved by our local IRB.
I also ask that you take a minute to send the survey on to alumni or other coaches this forum would not reach. I am slightly isolated here in Illinois and do not have many contacts in other states. Any help in getting this survey around is immensely appreciated.
The link to the survey is here:https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8SBKNHN
Please feel free to reach out to me with questions/comments. The school will post the thesis in it's finished form sometime in May.
Thank you in advance for your help!
