Feb. 28, 2023

On Saturday, February 25, the Eller College of Management at the University of Arizona hosted the 2023 Arizona Board of Regents’ Cup.

The Regents’ cup is a tri-university competition that features student teams from The University of Arizona, Arizona State University and Northern Arizona University. Student team members engage in debate and speech events that honor participants for articulating different points of view in an environment where competitors remain civil and respectful.

The Cup provides an opportunity for students to compete for scholarships and course credit by showcasing the universities’ commitment to upholding the rights of all students to liberty and freedom of speech.

The theme for the 2023 Regents’ Cup was Liberty, Prosperity and the Constitution.

Students participating, compete for first, second and third place awards in storytelling and Oxford events and receive a generous scholarship to apply towards their education.

The 2023 winners of the competition were students from the University of Arizona, making this the second consecutive win for the University.

“The Regents’ Cup serves as an excellent way for students to practice their skills in scenarios that are curated to encourage respect of varying perspectives,” says Karthik Kannan, dean and Halle Chair in Leadership of the Eller College. “We are proud not only to have hosted this annual event, but also to have participated in it and have one it both this year and last.”
