Model UN logo

For almost a decade, , Associate Professor of Political Science and Faculty Advisor to the UNA at UofL, has coordinated teams of delegates to participate in a regional Model UN. Sponsored by the Indiana Consortium of International Program, the Model UN brings together regional universities that convene 60-100 students every year.  Students act as delegates who represent countries on the UN Security Council. The model simulated the proceedings of the UN Security Council which assesses security threats and international crises in order to discuss and debate what role the body should take.  Over the years we have debated and passed resolutions on a broad range of international issues, such as Israeli-Palestinian conflicts, peacekeeping missions in the Democratic Republic of Congo, refugees crises and nuclear arms control.
