University of Texas at Tyler Debate Coaching Position
« on: June 13, 2017, 08:50:55 PM »

The University of Texas at Tyler is currently searching for a Director of Forensics for the 2017-2018 debate season. UT Tyler competes in NPDA Parliamentary debate, which is much more akin to NDT/CEDA in terms of its promotion of technical debate than its APDA cousin. UT Tyler is consistently one of the top performing NPDA programs in the country, having won a national championship in 2016 and produced the national top speaker in 2017.
