Speech and Debate
The Lewis & Clark speech & debate squad is one of the most successful full-service programs in the United States, as its competitors have excelled in both debate and individual events.
The L&C team has been around nearly since the founding of the college, and it is one of the most active and well-supported intercollegiate activities at Lewis & Clark, with individualized coaching and a supportive team culture.
