Civic Engagement

The Bard Debate Union, housed in Bard’s Center for Civic Engagement, puts civic engagement at the center of its mission and work. Through public debates and work with our local school districts, the Bard Prison Initiative, Bard Early Colleges, and Bard international network, we see debate as an empowering and productive way of engaging with our communities.
