This year, Hadassah Academic College (HAC) proudly welcomed 18 Arab and Jewish students to their Model UN extracurricular program.
This year, the program is headed by two students, Tal Ben-David from the Department of Politics and Communication and Hanan Abas from the Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences, and has already proven to be a huge success!
During the weekly meetings, students work together to build upon their debating skills and prepare to compete against fellow universities in Israel. HAC’s Model UN instills students with the tools, through hands-on experience in the field, to improve their diplomacy, public speaking, and conflict resolution skills.
Above and beyond the valuable academic skills learned here, students from different backgrounds are brought together based on their mutual interest for debate and strategy. This is yet another avenue HAC utilizes to bring together their mixed population of students to create positive and strong relationships on campus.
Stay tuned as the first inter-university debate is coming up December at Ben Gurion University. Good luck to the HAC Model UN students!
