Model UN Classroom

‘Model United Nations’ class leads to deeper understanding

Students in UW-Green Bay Assistant Prof. Elizabeth Wheat’s Introduction to Global Politics and Policy classes say United Nations simulations motivate and engage them on a deeper level. The assigned project gives them a better level of understanding as they research policy issues affecting other countries.

“You can only get so much taking notes and trying to understand…” says student Chase Hyland, who had never taken a class before with a simulation as an assignment. “If you actually put yourself in an engaging learning environment where you are conducting actions of people in the real world, it forces you to learn and understand how these programs and how these organizations run.”
