Our students have many opportunities to pursue their interests outside of the classroom. Organizations such as Political Awareness Society (PAS) hosts local and national political leaders on campus, and the Model United Nations allows students to travel to Chicago and New York to compete with schools from across the country.
Through Model United Nations, students experience the ways in which the international community deals with economic and environmental concerns, human rights abuses, disarmament and political conflicts, and many other global problems. Through the preparation in this unique simulation, our students will develop insights into the culture and political system of the country(ies) represented and acquire knowledge and practical experience in the workings of international diplomacy through advocacy, conflict resolution, and negotiation. Our students will also sharpen their analytical, communicative, and leadership skills, and gain confidence in their ability to function as student diplomats.
