nyu ambassadors

Every year, members of the acclaimed NYU Debate Team serve as "NYU Ambassadors."

 

One NYU student is paired with each team. Among other things, the Ambassadors are able to share with each team information about participating in college debate. 

The IPPF would not be possible without the support of the entire NYU Debate Team, whose members evaluate hundreds of essays throughout the year.

Pictured are the 2021-22 NYU Ambassadors.
