We Need Debate Judges!

Carroll's High School Debate tournament is Dec 4-5 and is the largest ever! Could you judge a round or two? We offer three types of debate:

  1. Policy debate will discuss domestic surveillance by the Federal Government.
  2. Lincoln Douglas debate will discuss whether juries should be given the power to acquit someone if they believe the law violated was unjust. (It's called "jury nullification.")
  3. Public Forum debate whether standardized testing in K-12 schools is beneficial or harmful.

We need judges at4, 6 & 8pm Fri;8 & 10pm Sat; and1pm Sat (quarterfinals). Ask your teachers about extra credit for this community service - quite a few teachers agreed last year! Sign up online.


Student Life

Bystander Training: Where do you stand?

Bystander Training"Where Do You Stand?" is Carroll's bystander intervention training. This training, being offered 2 more times on Mon & Tue, is mandatory for all new students at Carroll College.

Pulling from many national resources, this hour-long training is designed to help students learn how to Speak Up and Speak Out against sexual violence, predatory behaviors and bullying. Through the training, participants will be able to become familiar with what bystander intervention is, uncover their own personal barriers to intervening, and develop basic skills of bystander intervention through scenarios and small group discussions.

Come join us and help Carroll expand the message that “It’s on Us” to be part of the solution to keeping our fellow Saints safe.
