Wiley College’s storied debate team is hosting a two-on-two exhibition match Friday against three-time world champions Monash University from Melbourne, Australia. It’s the first time that Wiley has debated an international team. The students will take up the issue of economic inequality and how it can be remedied, according to Christopher Medina, Wiley’s director of forensics.
“Having the Australians with a completely different perspective on economic equality as well as poverty and hunger is going to be an amazing conversation," Medina said.
