Amrita Students Debating Society (ASDS) is a pioneering initiative of Corporate and Industry Relations (CIR) that envisions the development of a versatile student community skilled at researching, thinking and debating. ASDS ensures that students of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham get a dynamic learning space outside classroom to deliberate over diverse issues. The Society believes critical thinking and excellent communication are the two most important  life skills that decide the success of an individual—be it in personal or professional realm. 

The newsletter, The Voice of ASDS, sensitises students to the significance of debating and chronicles the major events conducted by ASDS.
