Baylor Model UN team wins top honor at international competition
Fourteen Baylor students (led by Dr. Rebecca Flavin, faculty advisor) were among the 5,000+ student participants who traveled to NYC from around the world for this competition. The Baylor contingent was assigned to represent Vietnam for the conference, with students role-playing a United Nations-like set-up to talk through such wide-ranging issues as organized crime, renewable energy, cybersecurity, sustainable forests, and terrorism.
When all was said and done, the Baylor team was named overall Outstanding Delegation — the conference’s highest honor! Four of the 14 students — Kate Farley, Megan Rollag, Connor Burns and Joe Yope — were also honored with the competition’s highest individual award.
Sic ’em, Baylor Model UN!
