Recognizing Model UN students

Congratulations to nine students from the College of Charleston who successfully completed the annual Southern Regional Model UN (SRMUN) conference held on October 23-25. Participation in this conference was part of the experiential learning course POLI 261-Model United Nations, taught by Professor Kovalov. In the past, Professor Kovalov took students for SRMUN to Atlanta for a 3-day event but the pandemic pushed organizers to look for safer ways to engage students in diplomacy. This was the first virtual SRMUN conference via zoom and students enjoyed this experience. In fact, several students commented that the virtual conference exceeded their expectations. Our students represented the delegation of the Russian Federation and they spent the first part of the fall 2020 semester learning about the UN, global issues, international diplomacy, the rules of the debate, and Russia’s foreign policy. The College of Charleston delegation included Gabrielle Carter, Macie Hardin, Hunter Harvey-Montano, Jordan Mercer, Gracie Pace, Savannah Petrelli, Sophia Stoios, Kara Swider, and Caroline Walker. Gabrielle Carter was recognized with the Best Delegate Award in the Economic and Social Council.
