Meeting World Leaders... Model UN students at McMurry have met such well-known world leaders as: Lady Margaret Thatcher, former British Prime Minister; S.E. Eduardo Somoza, Ambassador of Nicaragua to the UN; Mark Lagon, US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs; Paul Rusesabagina, of Hotel Rwanda fame, and many more!
Being World Leaders... Model UN graduates find themselves serving in leadership positions in their professions and in their communities too. Model UN students at McMurry also serve in many leadership positions across campus, such as: student government president, yearbook and newspaper editors; social club officers; and student representatives to the McMurry University Board of Trustees. Model UN students also are star athletes. Football, soccer, volleyball and track athletes have participated in Model UN.
But most importantly, Model UN truly embraces McMurry's Vision: "Cultivating Leadership, Excellence and Virtue...Every Student Every Day." Model UN students learn how to be leaders on campus and in their communities, they learn excellence in subject matter, and they learn virtue through problem solving in a cooperative, ethical environment.
