Last month, Central Piedmont Model United Nations Club members attended the UNCC Carolinas Conference, together with high schools and colleges from across North Carolina. The event gave the college's first-time and returning Central Piedmont Model United Nations delegates the opportunity to further develop their negotiating, problem solving, and public speaking skills within each committee.
Students researched, debated, and wrote mock UN resolutions at the conference about a variety of current global topics, such as gender and the role of women in disarmament, the effects of global warming on human health, the rising tensions between China and the U.S., and preventing spillover violence from the Sudan conflict.
"I learned about topics I otherwise would not have been aware of beforehand," said Returning Model UN member Yasmine Outtara.
Three of the newer members of the Central Piedmont Model UN team Katherine Beekman, Emma Hoff, and Christopher St. Hilaire were named Outstanding Delegates for representing South Africa in the Security Council and General Assembly 1st respectively.Learn more here.
