Matthew Gallagher and Connor Ahluwalia won the North American Universities Debating Championship (NAUDC) last weekend in Geneva, N.Y., defeating teams from Harvard, Yale and Stanford to take the trophy.
Hosted by Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Carleton was the only Canadian team to advance to the elimination rounds and won the quarter- and semi-final before taking the Grand Final.
Both are members of Carleton University’s Debating Society. Ahluwalia is a fourth-year student in the Bachelor of Public Administration and Policy Management (BPAPM) program, while Gallagher is in his first year of a Master’s in Political Management, having already graduated with his BPAPM.
