Tuesday, Nov 10, 2020

FAU’s Leon Charney Diplomacy Program finished first overall in the National Model United Nations competition in Washington, D.C., November 6-8. Forty-three universities participated. This is the second National title for the Program in three years.

The Leon Charney Diplomacy Program, which trains students in world affairs, dispute resolution, and debate, was established in 1996 and is a unit of the Peace, Justice & Human Rights Program. To date, the program has won forty-five national and international awards for academic excellence.

In 2017, the program was named to honor the diplomatic legacy of Leon Charney, who played a key role in the 1978 Camp David Accords. Political Science Professors Jeffrey Morton & Annette LaRocco direct the program, which will next compete in Nationals in New York City in April. 

Congratulations to the Diplomacy Program students and to Drs. Morton and LaRocco!
