2016 Presidential Debate Dates and Sites Are Announced.

The Democratic and Republican candidates will debate three times in 2016 at a series of universities, the nonpartisan, nonprofit commission that runs the presidential debates announced today. “We appreciate the many applications we received and are delighted with the sites we have selected,” said CPD Co-Chairs Frank Fahrenkopf and Mike McCurry in a statement. Another college, Dominican University of California, in San Rafael, will lead an initiative “to use technology and social media to engage young voters in a discussion of major issues in the 2016 debates,” the commission said. LOUIS — Four universities were chosen Wednesday to host the 2016 presidential and vice presidential debates, including veteran host Washington University in St.

Joan Neff, provost and vice president for academic affairs at Longwood, added: “For Longwood students, the chance to experience a debate on campus will be a part of their college experience they will never forget.” Washington University has hosted more debates sponsored by the commission than any other institution. Chancellor Mark Wrighton said several factors played in Washington University’s favor, including its central U.S. location and its track record in successfully carrying out debates.
