A few places to check for important dates and upcoming events:
Model United Nations
The NOVA Model United Nations Delegation is looking for students to attend the upcoming &MUN IV Conference at the College of William & Mary, from April 14-17, 2016 on behalf of NOVA.
Model United Nations is an extra-curricular simulation of the United Nations where students role-play delegates or ambassadors from different countries, using those new perspectives, to propose solutions to real world issues. Student “delegates” make speeches, negotiate with allies and adversaries, and resolve conflicts over the course of a few days at conferences held both nationally and internationally. You can read more information by clicking on the following links: http://bestdelegate.com/what-is-model-united-nations/ or http://www.unausa.org/global-classrooms-model-un/how-to-participate/getting-started/frequently-asked-questions#what_is.
The NOVA MUN Delegation is a college-wide organization. Its mission is to present NOVA students with opportunities to learn about the functions and practices of the United Nations, discuss critical international issues that effect the world, and build and strengthen students’ critical thinking, research, communication, and leadership skills.
If you are interested in learning more about the NOVA Model United Nations Delegation or attending this conference, please stop by our general interest meeting this Friday, February 26th, 2016 from 3:30pm-5:30pm at the Alexandria Campus in room AA158.
