Thailand International Relations Students Attend Pan Asia Model UN
Model UN provides students with real life diplomatic experience that also tests and develops their critical decision-making.

Two Webster University Thailand students were selected as delegates for the 2016 Pan Asia Model United Nations Conference held in Taipei, Taiwan, Dec. 8-11.

The conference provided international relations majors Solomiya Dzera and Cassie Dodge with a unique opportunity to engage with hundreds of other students from around the world in a simulation of an actual UN meeting.

Just like the real United Nations, delegates represent a country and are required to push that country’s policies and agenda throughout the relevant sessions. Webster’s representatives were assigned by the organizers to represent Venezuela in the Security Council Committee, a multi-faceted diplomatic challenge.

Webster faculty place a strong importance on ensuring that all graduates are able to "hit the ground running" as soon as they conclude their studies. Students in Thailand have numerous opportunities throughout their degree program to participate in regional conferences, seminars, events and internships. In particular these students received encouragement from Keith Welsh, campus director, Kenneth Houston, head of College of Arts & Sciences programs at Webster University Thailand.
