UCA Professor Dr. Mark Mullenbach, along with students Kayla Close and Katelyn Wilkins, participated in a Model United Nations event at Little Rock Central High School. Around 50 students and teachers from LRCHS, Mills University Studies H.S., J.A. Fair H.S., Pulaski Academy, and UALR participated in the event, which included sessions on writing position papers, developing resolutions, participating in committees, committee topics, and parliamentary procedures. Following a luncheon, the students participated in mock sessions of UN committees.
This is just one of a number of activities in the run up to the Model United Nations conference that UCA hosts every November. High school delegations from all across Arkansas and from as far away as Nashville, TN and the panhandle of Florida attend. The number of participants routinely exceeds 300. Next year’s conference will be the 50th annual meeting.
