Model UN Exhibition
, 5:00-7:00pm at Fort Lewis College, Noble Hall rooms 125 and 130. Assuming the roles of ambassadors from a variety of UN states, the students will attempt to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict using parliamentary procedure and their knowledge of global politics--no small feat, indeed.
