Be an inclusive environment for Newman University students to share a common interest in debating.
Provide a platform for current affairs, political events and philosophical questions to be discussed on a regular basis during term-time on campus.
Support members in training needs by providing lessons, workshops and visiting key trainers to improve their skills both in debating in person and running the society.
Enable students to undertake competitive debating either with other Newman students or students from other institutions either on site or at external competitions.
Work with other societies and student groups to host debates relevant to their aims and objectives. For example: to provide potential candidates for Students' Union role-holders to have debated prior to Election Hustings and/or with the LGBT society to discuss relevant and topical issues with their membership.
