JOIN MEMBERS OF THE PENN POLITICAL UNION for a crash course on engaging in social and political debates to persuade others of your views (and perhaps be persuaded of theirs). There will be training in debate skills and a number of mini debates for practicing.

THE PENN POLITICAL UNION (PPU) is an undergraduate organization formed in 2014 that features parliamentary-style deliberation on urgent contemporary issues. To represent a wide spectrum of political opinion, students affiliate with five member political parties: Libertarian, Conservative, Centrist, Liberal, and Progressive. The goal of PPU, in both debates and less formal discussions, is to fully represent political diversity while maintaining civility and openness to other outlooks.
