Overcoming Funding Challenges.
Collier, Linda M.
Intercollegiate debate programs are facing a continuing demand for excellence without any guarantee of adequate resources. Important considerations for program administrators include: be positive, not negative; look for opportunities to build alliances with political science or philosophy departments; be a responsible administrator; and deal with potential problems sooner rather than later. Although every funding situation is unique, six strategies can help meet the omnipresent budget challenges which confront intercollegiate debate: (1) become a "winner" based on program design and institutional goals; (2) generate awareness on campus; (3) generate awareness off campus; (4) collect information; (5) make the decisions necessary to meet the established goals; and (6) explore external funding sources.
