Monmouth University’s Department of Political Science and Sociology is proud to announce that the Monmouth University Model United Nations team of delegates recently represented The France Republic on various United Nations committees during their first trip to an international Model UN conference. The conference took place in Rome, Italy, and this year’s theme was Millennium Development Goals: What do you want for your 2015?
Of the 1,200 delegates that participated in Model UN Rome, only 40 are honored altogether, and the Monmouth University team was honored six times within the following categories: best delegate, outstanding delegation, and distinguished delegation. The team was accompanied by faculty advisor Dr. Thomas Lamatsch and consisted of delegates Andrew Bell, Tyler Breder, David Goldenthal, Aziz Mama (Head Delegate), Katelyn Nawoyski, Miriam Peguero, and Matthew Sangster, all representing Monmouth University.
The Monmouth University Model UN team is comprised of more than 30 members representing about ten different majors. The team is open to all students, and no experience is required. The second Model UN team of delegates is currently representing Belgium at the Model UN conference in New York, March 24 to 28.
