Marian University’s Model UN team traveled to Washington, DC November 1 – 6, 2017 to participate in the national conference.  They represented United Nations Member State of the Royal Kingdom of Morocco, visited their embassy, and placed in the upper third of all teams at the competition, earning an official Honorable Mention.

Participating students included Erin Butzke, Trevor Johnson, Nauris Buskevics, Lillie Lee,

Lauren Casper, Anna Steberg, Janae Dell, and Ryan Wagner. Scott Dell and Garry Moise are the faculty for the Model UN courses this year.

“I learned how to interact with politically-motivated students from across the country and globe and made connections in order to meet a common goal,” said Erin Butzke, a nursing student form Fond du Lac, Wis. “It was a great learning experience and I really enjoyed it.”
