Bickel & Brewer DebateThe Bickel & Brewer NYU Global Debate Competition returns in 2014-2015, pitting undergraduate debate teams from all fourteen NYU global sites against one another in a contest that will award prizes totaling $37,000.

The topic for the 2014-2015 Bickel & Brewer Global Debate at NYU will be: “Resolved: The world is safer now than it was a decade ago.”

The Global Debate Program begins this fall semester with the formation of teams, with students registering for the competition in November. NYU faculty, graduate students, and representatives from the Bickel & Brewer Foundation will serve as judges. In the spring semester, “kock-out” rounds will be held at the New York campus and through the use of video teleconferencing connected to other global sites to reduce the field to a group known as the “Sweet 16.” The final rounds on the NYU campus will culminate in the Championship Debate and an awards ceremony with prizes to the top sixteen teams.

Check the program’s website for more information and frequently asked questions, and Register now! Space is limited and participation is on a first come basis.

In the Prior Learning Assessment Information Sessions, attendees learn the four ways that McGhee students may earn credit for their prior college-level learning. Topics covered will include foreign language proficiency, standardized testing (CLEP/Excelsior College/Advanced Placement exams), transfer credits, and credits earned through the portfolio process in McGhee’s Seminar in Experiential Learning (attending this information session is a prerequisite for entering the seminar).

The main focus of the assessment will be the prior college-level learning that adults have earned before returning to or starting college. Students will also be given the opportunity to ask questions related to individual academic circumstances.

No RSVP is required. This is a drop-in session, only.
