“It is important that UNH supports its Model UN team because it provides amazing opportunities and experiences for its members, brings the school to be represented and recognized at an international level, and brings what we learn back to the university by putting on and sponsoring programs,” Duchesne said.
Each meeting is directed with the New York conference in mind.
“Every meeting we work on some aspect of the conference,” Duchesne said. “This requires putting together an ‘actor profile’ of Tanzania … They must understand the problems and use Tanzania’s position and orientation towards the problems to develop solutions.”
The UNH Model UN group has high expectations for the future.
“The award has definitely set the sights higher for Model UN in the future at UNH,” Duchesne said. “The program has really been building up and the award reflects all of our hard work. We are definitely going to continue this trend of progress and continue to achieve, especially with the precedence set this year as a distinguished delegation. We want to become more visible on campus as a prominent and prestigious group to represent the university’s level of scholarship.”
