Public Service Spotlight

Caitlin Flanagan portrait

Caitlin Flanagan

In this Public Service Spotlight, we talk with Caitlin Flanagan, a second-year in the College, who is the new chair of the Charlottesville Debate League. Caitlin describes the mission of CDL as, “to teach kids debate to get them excited about the way that learning can grow their confidence and public speaking skills and the way that all their academic disciplines can use their talents that are not typically recognized in the classroom.” Learn more about CDL and how you can get involved with spreading debate to Charlottesville youth in her interview.
