Model UN

Sponsor: Paul Magoni - [email protected]

In the Model UN club, students role-play various countries in the world. They learn about the history, politics, and foreign policies of several countries and begin to understand the importance of the United Nations in the world today. Students become familiar with several international problems or issues and experience the give and take of diplomacy as they attempt to pass resolutions in their councils. The model provides an opportunity for them to improve their public speaking and debate skills and to learn some parliamentary procedure, as well as how to learn how to work constructively in a group. Meetings are on Wednesdays, and there are 5 weekend conferences at various colleges throughout the Midwest. Please contact Mr. Magoni for more information
