Model UN Takes on International Crises at Columbia University

IMG_4535 Members of Ross School’s elective Model UN class and club attended the 16th annual Columbia Model United Nations Conference and Exhibition (CMUNCE) at Columbia University January 12–15.

CMUNCE is one of the premier crisis model UN simulations in the country, offering students an opportunity to engage with one another, practice their debate skills, and consider solutions to real-world international affairs crises.

Over the course of the three-day event, 14 delegates from Ross School participated on a variety of committees, dealing with topics that ranged in scope from Putin’s cabinet to the fall of Constantinople.

“We were excited to participate in this experience,” said Model UN advisor Kyle Helke. “Our delegates had fun developing their debating, negotiating, and public speaking skills. Even those who were new to Model UN and crisis conferences learned a great deal.”
