Model UN Team at the Georgetown University NCSC
Twelve cadets of the West Point Model United Nations (MUN) Team traveled to Crystal City, VA to participate in the Georgetown University Model United Nations Conference (NCSC) hosted by Georgetown University.
NCSC presented the West Point MUN team with the opportunity to develop public speaking skills, gain knowledge of international affairs, cultivate negotiation skills, and represent the U.S. Army and USMA in a professional and positive way to a student audience. Schools in attendance included the University of Pennsylvania, Harvard University, Florida International University, and UC Berkeley, among many others.
Cadets were able to participate in a number of interesting and dynamic debate topics, including, but not limited to; the United Nations Conference on Water, the Microsoft Board of Directors, the United Nations Security Council, a historical simulation of the Afghan Parliament, and an ASEAN Defense Meeting.
