In a recent Midwest Model United Nations Session, students from Cameron University represented the often-overlooked nation of Chad.
The session addressed different countries and the challenges that they may face, helping students learn about collaboration, diplomacy and foreign affairs.
The six students from Cameron who took part in the session discussed a variety of issues.
Jenner Grim, who was a part of the second committee, discussed poverty and human settlement. Josey Dennis spoke about problems related to illicit activities, and Norman Holcomb weighed women's issues and aid for individuals following natural disasters.
“Participating at the Midwest Model U.N. provides an exceptional learning experience for our students and gives them an opportunity to demonstrate effective communication and critical thinking,” Wendy Whitman Cobb, an assistant professor for political science at Cameron, said.
Next year's Cameron University students will represent the United States in the Model U.N. session.
