The Saint Mary’s University’s Model UN delegation.

Mirroring the United Nations

By Suzanne Robicheau | fall 2016

Saint Mary’s University’s Model UN delegation, headed by Political Science Chair, Dr. Marc Doucet, was one of only four delegations from Canadian universities to be awarded a Distinguished Delegation Award at the 2016 National Model United Nations (NMUN) Conference. The Saint Mary’s team competed against 5,500 students from more than 400 schools, debating, negotiating, and drafting resolutions in simulated UN committees during two, back-to-back conferences held in New York last spring. In other Model UN news, this year’s delegation included 18 students from Saint Mary’s and four from Freiburg University of Education in Germany – a joint effort that marks a first for Saint Mary’s.
