Model UN Team Wins Best Delegation

Truman’s Model United Nations Team won the award for best delegation at the 21st annual American Model United Nations (AMUN) conference late last semester. George Allan Jr. and Victoria Benson, both sophomores studying political science, traveled to Chicago to represent Truman in the competition.

In the competition, AMUN assigns a country for each team to represent in a simulation of the United Nations. This year, Truman’s team represented the General Assembly Plenary for the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Truman competed against more than 1,500 students from domestic and foreign universities such as Yale University, the University of Arizona, Georgetown University and National Chengchi University in Taiwan.

This is the second year in a row Truman won the best delegation award. The Model United Nations Team has already been slotted to represent Morocco and Iran in next year’s competition.
