Belmont Students Participate in American Model United Nations Conference

Belmont University Model UN students Jerel Henderson, Tara Clance, Brooke Yaiser, Holly Morgan, Stefanie Faull, Megan Duthie, Emily Cox, Patrick Futrell, Melinda Price and Kap Sum  were enthusiastic delegates to the American Model United Nations conference held in Chicago from Nov. 19-22, 2011. Dr. Susan Jellissen (Political Science)) accompanied them.  As delegates representing South Korea, the students tackled pressing issues, such as renewable energy, microcredit, protecting human rights in the context of countering terrorism, and human trafficking. After researching their respective topics for several months, the students spent an intensive three days caucusing and deliberating with 1,500 students from over 150 other schools — thus gaining an almost unmatched “experiential” insight into the workings of the actual United Nations. Belmont’s Model UN club is excited to represent China at the 2012 AMUN conference in Chicago.
