Fletcher, Brady

  • Director of Forensics

As an alum of the University (MA '08), Brady is very proud to be directing the University of Rochester Debate Union. He has taught and coached many different speech and debate activities over the years at the University of Vermont, the University of Rochester, and at several high schools and middle schools in Rochester, New York City and Long Island, NY. He began his debate career with no previous experience as a debater at the University of Vermont. In 2005 he won the Novice National Debate Tournament, and tied for top speaker, and went on to have success as a varsity debater. Brady believes in the value and importance of novice debate, and recognizes that there are many different reasons people decide to join the activity. He also knows first-hand how rewarding it can be to advance to the highest competitive level. Whatever your reason, Brady wants to encourage all UR students to come on by and give debate a try, as he once did many years ago.
