Concordia University Speech Team is committed to providing a team-centered and supportive environment in which students use competitive public speaking as a context for forming lasting friendships while practicing the foundational habits of a liberal education, including empathy, wisdom, moderation and courage. We provide a safe space for students of all backgrounds to share messages they are passionate about in an effort to make positive changes in our world, our community and ourselves.
We believe that forensics is an activity that is central to the university’s mission to inspire students to learn, serve and lead in the church and world. We will constantly, and unapologetically, push our students to be better: better students, better competitors, better citizens, better people.
Express your passions and discover the power of your voice with speech at Concordia.
Meet Your Coaches
Speak for Yourself
Concordia has dedicated spaces for researching, rehearsing and performing speeches, as well as discovering and cementing the life-long friendships you’ll have with others on the speech team.
Each year, Concordia awards speech scholarships to students who demonstrate ability and desire to improve the team. These scholarships are granted in addition to other merit-, talent-, and need-based aid for which you may be eligible.
I love that the speech team at Concordia tries to represent the values of the school in the pieces we choose. We try to show Christ’s love through how we perform.
