On Wednesday, October 19, Taylor Mangus ’23, Political Science, was featured on a panel on “Disarmament Education as a Solution to Peace” at the United Nations as part of the #Leaders4Tomorrow event (PDF). Mangus—who was joined on the panel by leaders such as Chair of the UN General Assembly First Committee Ambassador Mohan Pieris of Sri Lanka and Ambassador Thomas Goebel of Germany—spoke about taking courses on disarmament at Pace and interning with the Costa Rican ambassador.
Last fall, Mangus was instrumental in preparing a statement that her classmate Jeremiah Williams ’23, delivered to the United Nations General Assembly First Committee as part of a course taught by Professor of Political Science Matthew Bolton, PhD. This year, Molly Rosaaen ’22, Political Science, presented a statement prepared by five of her peers in Bolton’s class, just a week before Mangus spoke on the panel. Bolton joined Mangus at this year’s event, and 20 students from his class on disarmament attended as part of a class trip.
