Clark Students disarm the Middle East
Clark College competed in the National Model United Nations Conference in February that was held for the first time in Portland, Ore. More than 20 colleges and universities from around the United States, Canada and Japan were present. The nine student delegates led by Head Delegate Collin Mertens did an outstanding job in resolving issues relating to access to clean water, disarmament in the Middle East and the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, according to Joseph Cavalli, director of the Model UN program at Clark.
“The Model United Nations program at Clark closely follows, researches, debates and resolves conflict much like the real United Nations except I’d say we’re more efficient,” he said.
The Model United Nations is an international organization that hosts regional conferences throughout the year with national conferences held on the East and West Coast. Model UN is an excellent tool for students to learn about the real UN, conflict resolution, debate and networking.
