Director of Individual Events
Claire Crossman graduated with a B.A. from Lewis & Clark College, majoring in Rhetoric and Media, and received her M.A. from California State University, Los Angeles, where she majored in Communication Studies. During her undergrad, she competed in both speech and debate for Lewis & Clark, advancing to national elimination rounds in both platform and interpretation events. She is also a member of the 2017 AFA All-American team.
As the lead forensics graduate assistant at CSULA, Claire coached all three genres of individual events, and became CUI’s Assistant Director of Individual Events after graduating. Now, as the Director of Individual Events, she is ecstatic to take on a larger role for Concordia’s team, and to be able to help grow their tradition of excellence in forensics.
