Emily Fixx of Madison and a senior at Chase Collegiate School, is part of the school's Model UN Delegation that headed to Boston to take part in 60th Session of Harvard Model United Nations (HMUN), being held from January 31 to February 3, 2013, in Cambridge, MA.
The Model United Nations provides students the opportunity to learn about and discuss today’s most relevant issues of international diplomacy through participation in an academic simulation of the United and Nations General Assembly and other multilateral UN bodies and International Organizations.
In the simulation, Chase delegates will be representing Iceland on the following General Assembly committees such as Disarmament and International Security, Special Political and Decolonization, and the World Health Organization. This marks the thirteenth year of Model UN at Chase. In the past Chase has attended Model UN conferences sponsored by Harvard, Yale, Georgetown, and the University of Hartford.
