UIndy Forensic Speech and Debate adapts to COVID-19 changes
For the Forensic Speech and Debate team, COVID-19 meant the end of their competitive season last year. But this semester, Team Director and Assistant Professor of Communication Stephanie Wideman did not want to see the team suffer the same fate.
Over the summer, coaches from all across the country met and discussed ways to have a season in the fall, according to Wideman.
The community decided to develop their own program called Yaatly that was designed specifically for speech and debate tournaments.
