The first Caribbean Inter-Collegiate Debating Tournament was organized and held on the St. Thomas campus of the University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) in April 1989. It was the brain child of Ms. Junie M. Violenes, Student Activities Supervisor at UVI St. Thomas. She worked with an organizing team comprising Prof. Vaneer Godwin, Mr. Ronald Taplin (then Acting Director of Student Affairs), and student reps. Daley Phillips and Valencia Williams.

Since then, the debates have expanded to include the wider Caribbean, with other University campuses serving as host - University of the West Indies (UWI) St. Augustine in Trinidad and Tobago; Caribbean Research Center of Medgar Evers College (City University of New York); College of the Bahamas; Inter-American University, Puerto Rico; UVI, St. Croix; and UWI, Cave Hill in Barbados.
