Students at a Model UN conference

The NMU Model United Nations Club, led by Professor William Ball, sent 22 of its members to the American Model United Nations Conference in Chicago. The NMU students, who represented the United States, earned the outstanding delegation award for three of their five delegations, including the Security Council, the Historical Security Council and the International Court of Justice. The club is now second in the nation, behind Yale, in the number of awards won at Model United Nations Conferences.

“That is quite an achievement for a small school that has only been participating for 19 years—since I first came here,” said Professor Ball. “We also had four other students and former students who, based on their past performances, were invited to serve on staff for the conference this year.”

Students interested in traveling to Toronto, Canada, Feb. 20-24 to participate in the North American Model United Nations Conference should register for PS 299 Model United Nations. Contact Professor Ball for more information at 906-227-1821.
