Canisius College was proud to host the annual Model UN Conference on Thursday, November 7. Some 400 student-delegates from 20 local high schools converged on campus for the day-long event, which saw students simulating UN committees and debating important global issues.
Kicking off this year’s conference was Shane Siegel, from the Canisius Class of 2003. Siegel (pictured below) is a foreign service officer for the U.S. Department of State. In addition to opening the Model UN Conference on Thursday morning, Siegel also spoke with students in Secil Ertorer’s Intro to Sociology class and John Occhipinti’s Foreign Policy class.
