Mercy College’s United Nations Team has earned the title "Distinguished Delegation Award" at the Model United Nations Competition. The award was received by the Haiti Delegation for their work at the National Model United Nations which took place in April 2014.
This is the second highest honor based on the performance of the delegations. This team was composed of students from the international organization course, led by School of Social and Behavioral Sciences Lecturer and Coordinator of the International Relations and Diplomacy Program Michiko Kuroda. Kuroda, who worked at the United Nations for 30 years and now teaches the Model United Nations class at Mercy, also leads the Model United Nations Club at Mercy College.
Kuroda said, “I was amazed to see the transformation of students at the conference. Everybody was so motivated to work hard. Nobody wanted to give up- and it paid off.”
The closing ceremony took place at the United Nations General Assembly Hall.
