He has provided training to national pro-life organizations such as Students for Life of America, Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, Teachers Saving Children and serves as faculty at the Friends for Life annual pro-life apologetics retreat alongside Scott Klusendorf, President of Life Training Institute.

Professor Webb has been an instructor at Purdue for the past 44 years. He was included in the inaugural edition of the "Book of Great Teachers" at Purdue, and is a fellow in the Purdue University Teaching Academy. He has taught abroad in London, Oxford, Italy, Australia, and on the Purdue European Grand Tour through Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and France. His courses, many of which he designed himself, focus on interpersonal, cultural and gender-related communication. In 2009, Professor Webb was one of four professors at Purdue University to receive the Charles B. Murphy Award for outstanding undergraduate teaching.
Professor Webb particularly enjoys studying the communication between and among sexes and genders and countries and cultures because he says it is exciting, challenging, and relevant. His main priority is creating a class environment where his students can feel comfortable learning and growing.
Not only has professor Webb received several awards from Purdue University, but his students speak very highly of him and the way he conducts his classes.
Having extensive debate experience including his role as a debate coach, we welcome Professor Webb to present the negative case in this debate.
