We are excited to announce the 3rd edition of the U.S Universities Arabic Debating Championship (3rd USADC), hosted at Stanford University in collaboration with the Abbasi Program between 14th – 16th October, 2022.

This championship follows the tremendous success of the 1st USADC at Harvard in 2019 and the 2nd USADC at the University of Chicago in 2021.

The championship will bring together the brightest young minds from across the United States to debate critical global issues in Arabic. Up to 40 American University teams, including the University of Chicago, Harvard University, Duke University, Stanford University, and many more vying for the title of National Champion.

In addition to debating critical topics, the championship creates an environment for cultural exchange, strengthening the language abilities of native and nonnative speakers, and enriching the dialogue.
