The Rock Valley College Model United Nations team recently attended the National Model United Nations (NMUN) conference in Washington, D.C. The team was chosen as one of only six outstanding delegations at the conference.
The NMUN drew delegates from all over the world as more than 500 college/university students participated in discussions of issues at the forefront of international relations. The conference included a crisis simulation in the Security Council and committee briefings by distinguished speakers from the Washington, D.C., diplomatic community.
