Students from a variety of universities took part in the VI annual Model United Nations, held at the Russian State University for the Humanities in Moscow this month. As part of this role-playing conference, students gained valuable experience in public speaking and the preparation of official documents concerning important policy and humanitarian issues. Chase Philpot '14, who is currently spending the year abroad on the Dickinson-in-Moscow program, took part in one particular meeting modeled after the Historical Security Council of September 12, 2001. The theme of this meeting was “Terrorist Threats to International Peace and Security.”
“It was an interesting experience being the only native English speaker in the room, especially representing the Russian Federation surrounded by Russians,” remarked Chase Philpot.
