Tembusu Debate Society
The Tembusu Debate Society fosters intellectual engagement among students through discussing current controversies and questions for the College, Singapore, Asia and at a global level across different platforms. Over the years, the guest panel discussion series, the Elephant in the Room, has supported the debate of issues such as freedom or speech and non-heterosexual rights. In previous years, the Debate Society has supported intellectual engagement across different Colleges in UTown and beyond through being a key organizer of a debate competition, the University Town Intercollegiate Provost's Challenge Shield. The Debate Society conducts regular, professional training in debating skills and techniques, according to the British and Asian Parliamentary formats.
