Each year students, faculty, and staff from network institutions join together annually at Central European University (in Budapest, Hungary) for the Bard Network Debate Conference – a week-long conference focused on the sharing of best practices and strategies for running university debate programs and for using debate as a tool of community building and civic engagement; the conference culminates in a researched and rehearsed public debate in front of a live audience, featuring a participant from each institution.
