The Yale Hindi Debate


Born as a student’s idea in a Yale classroom, the Yale Hindi Debate has grown exponentially, from an ambitious venture to an intellectual, cultural, and social institution. 
The debate was established as a Yale-only event in 2008, and now sees participation from faculty and students from USA’s preeminent schools, including Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Columbia, the University of Pennsylvania, NYU, Cornell, UCLA, Wesleyan, Rutgers, the University of Texas at Austin, and Wellesley College.

The YHD Board works in conjunction with the faculty co-ordinator and the South Asian Studies Council, throughout the year, in preparation for the debate which takes place in the spring. The work encompasses all administrative and financial aspects of the debate, both before the debate and on the days of the debate, both on and off stage.  

The YHD Board is currently inviting applications. Please contact if you are interested.
