To advance this mission, the MTSU Debate Team will seek to:
- Apply the strictest ethical principles.
- Strive for and competitive excellence at all times.
- Treat each other with respect, kindness, and gentleness in all encounters.
- Conduct ourselves as professionals despite all obstacles.
- Teach those who come after us as those before taught us.
