Gannon University To Host 61st Annual Model UN Conference

2012 Model UNPosted: November 8, 2013
The 61st annual Gannon University Model United Nations conference will convene in General Assembly at Gannon's Hammermill Center on Friday, November 8 at 7 p.m. This event brings together more than 500 high school students from Pennsylvania, Ohio, and New York to discuss and debate the most pressing international issues of our times with Gannon faculty, staff, and students.

The Model U.N. is a simulation of actual U.N. proceedings, and students are evaluated in terms of accuracy in their portrayal of its member states. The event, the longest-running one of its kind in the country and the second-oldest Model U.N. club in the world, is organized by the Department of Political, Legal, and International Studies. It provides a unique opportunity for American high school students to learn about diverse cultures and political systems around the world.
