At this year’s 2006 National Model United Nations Conference in New York City, held from April 11 to April 15, Pace students won more awards than any other university.

The New York City Campus Team won OUTSTANDING Delegation and OUTSTANDING Position Paper Awards while representing The United Republic of Tanzania at the 2006 National Model.

The Pleasantville Campus Team won OUTSTANDING Position Paper Award and DISTINGUISHED Delegation Award while representing the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Competing against 3,700 university students from 230 schools at this internationally recognized and highly prestigious conference, Pace students distinguished themselves in public speaking skills, adherence to country policy, political debate, and international dialogue regarding humanitarian, political, economic, and social issues.

In the true spirit of civic engagement, the Model UN teams have successfully taught Brazilian students about Model United Nations, youth advocacy, and sustainable development in November 2005, hosted the third annual Tri-State Model United Nations Conference in February 2006, and created an engaging event for prospective students as the centerpiece of Open House in April 2006.

The Pleasantville Team is advised by Gregory Julian, PhD, Chair of Political Science. The New York City Team is advised by Meghana Nayak, PhD, Assistant Professor of Political Science.
