Dr. Susan Jellissen, associate professor of political Science, led a delegation of twelve Belmont students to the American Model United Nations conference in Chicago, Illinois from November 19-22.

At the conference, Belmont represented Estonia, a Baltic state and spent three days caucusing with students from more than 100 schools, each representing a particular country, in a simulation of the real United Nations. They focused on issues including nuclear weapons, refugees, the global arms trade, land mines and economic development.
