Diana Amerson–the Chesnutt Library Government Documents Librarian–is currently in Durham, North Carolina supporting Fayetteville State University students who are participating as delegates in the 2014 NCCIIE Model United Nations Conference.
Today, March 21st, marks day two of the Model UN Conference; FSU students have stepped up like a bucking bronco. They kicked the scholarly challenge to become delegates for the 2014 Model UN. Our student Broncos took on the challenge and used this opportunity to strengthen student engagement and international partnerships. The NCCIIE Model UN Conference also serves as a prime FSU faculty development activity.
Mrs. Amerson created and actively maintains the NCCIIE LibGuide, which is a useful academic resources for student delegates to use while conducting research for their projects and resolutions. The NCCIIE is a way for students to do global research and has been successfully implemented into the process.
They are really having a lot fun!
Model United Nations is an authentic simulation of the UN General Assembly and UN Security Council. The Model UN catapults students into the world of diplomacy and negotiation as ambassadors in role playing. Students step into the shoes of UN member state ambassadors to debate on current issues in the international community to represent their countries in and acts on its concerns about today issues such as:
- peace and security
- human rights
- the environment
- food and hunger
- economic development
