SF Students Win National Model United Nations Conference Award

Santa Fe College’s Model United Nations team won a distinguished delegation award at the National Model United Nations. This international conference took place last week in New York City, partly at the United Nations headquarters.

The SF team represented the Republic of Madagascar and its government’s views with regard to a series of international issues including climate change, women and disarmament, nuclear nonproliferation, peacekeeping reform, Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories, and assessment of the social impact of the global financial crisis.

They interacted with university students from dozens of countries to simulate a real UN session. They gave speeches as Malagasy ambassadors, negotiated with other diplomats, exercised their diplomatic skills, and drafted UN reports and resolutions. Please congratulate our team members for representing SF so admirably.
