Truman’s Model United Nations Team Attends Conference

The Truman State University Model United Nations team recently returned from its annual conference, held Nov. 17-20 in Chicago.

Model U.N. is a simulation program where students role-play diplomats representing the states that are members of the U.N. Truman students represented Canada and Montenegro at the 2007 conference. Participants draft resolutions on various international topics now confronting the organization, which are then put to a vote of the delegations present. Resolutions that pass are forwarded to U.N.’s headquarters in New York for consideration there. Delegations may also receive recognition for outstanding representation of their assigned states during conference simulations.  Truman’s delegation received recognition for its issue position papers presented at the conference.

Truman will represent Romania and Venezuela at the 2008 conference. Students interested in further information on this program should contact Jeff Wm. Justice, assistant professor of political science, at 785.7243 or Further information on the program is available at the American Model United Nations Web site,
