PSU Political Science Students attend Model UN

The Model UN

The Model UN

From 16-19 February Pittsburg State University, under the auspices of the Political Science Honor society (Pi Sigma Alpha), sent a delegation nine
students to the 51st Midwest Model United Nations in St. Louis, MO at the Marriott Hotel, Union Station. Any interested Pitt State student was eligible
to particate. Students from Political Science, as well as International Studies, History, and Communication composed the delegation.

Our delegates this year were:

  • Lindsay Nance–2nd GA Committee and head delegate
  • Robert Kinsman–2nd GA Committee
  • Ashley Mance–Ecosoc
  • Matt Newbanks–4th Committee
  • Alexander Gerges–Historical Security Council
  • Inna Fomina–3rd GA Committee
  • Clinton Burke–IAEA
  • Luke Pryor–Time of India
  • Tim Campbell–1st GA Committee

The model UN gives college and university students the opportunity to learn international relations and diplomatic skills by playing the role of national
delegations at the real UN. The Pitt State delegation represented India and served on the four committees of the General Assembly (and the plenum), the
Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the ECOSOC Plenum, the historical Security Council (1967), and the
International Press Delegation. The delegation won two awards: Best delegation to the ECOSOC Plenum, and best International Press Delegation.

Next year Pitt State’s delegation will represent the country of Gabon.
