Model United Nations Students Attend Conference

Belmont University Model United Nations students Rezzan Hekmat, Mary Yang, Melinda Price, Joseph Minga, Anna Jones, John Palmer Rea, Emily Cox, Charlie Dankert, Holly Morgan, Stefanie Faull, Shante Piche, Deya Malda and Philip Morris, accompanied by Political Science Assistant Professor Susan Jellissen, were delegates to the American Model United Nations conference held in Chicago from Nov. 17 through 20.

As delegates representing China, the students tackled pressing issues, such as global disarmament, 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 experiential insight into the workings of the actual United Nations.

Belmont’s Model UN club will represent Denmark at the 2013 AMUN conference in Chicago.
