Five students in the Leon Charney Diplomacy Program at Florida Atlantic University recently traveled to New York City to attend the Foreign Policy Association’s World Leadership Forum. 

The students were hosted by Florida Policy Association President Noel Lateef and attended a day-long session with foreign policy experts and United Nations dignitaries. 

“This was an amazing opportunity for our students,” said Jeffrey Morton, Ph.D., director of the Leon Charney Diplomacy Program. “The World Leadership Forum is one of the foremost public forums on global affairs.”

FAU’s diplomacy program is named in honor of Leon Charney, who played a key role in the 1978 Camp David Accords.Established in 1996, it trains students in world affairs, dispute resolution and debate, and is a unit of the Peace, Justice and Human Rights Initiative.
