Here are two photos sent from McMurry University Model UN team in the Galapagos Islands.
Each year, the National Model United Nations (NMUN) invites universities and colleges from all over the world for a week-long conference. During the conference, each school represents a country and serves as that country’s delegation in a simulation of a United Nations’ session. Students acting as delegates tackle real-world issues and draft resolutions to help solve these issues in specialized committees.
While the conference is held annually in New York every Spring, a select number of schools are chosen to participate in a Global NMUN conference held somewhere in the world, and this year our own McMurry University Model UN was chosen to represent Argentina in the conference, with this year’s focus being “Sustainable Development.” McMurry students participating are:
Martha Chace (Senior) English Major/Biology Minor from Clovis, New Mexico. Martha’s committee will be focused on The Status of Women
Joshua Brooks (Junior) Biochemistry Major from Abilene, Texas. Josh’s committee will be focused on Science and Technology for Development
Kenna Cornelius (Senior) Life Science Major/ Chemistry Minor from Coleman, Texas. Kenna’s committee will be focused on methods for Sustainable Development
Quinten Smith (Senior) English Major/ Education Minor from San Antonio, Texas. Quinten’s committee will be focused on Population and Development will be taking four student representatives to the conference.
