The Leon Charney Diplomacy Program in Florida Atlantic University’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters recently received the Distinguished Delegation Award at the National Model United Nations competition in New York City. Twenty-six FAU undergraduates joined more than 5,500 college students from 350 universities in the annual competition where schools represent countries and students step into the shoes of diplomats to solve global problems.

The Leon Charney Diplomacy Program, which trains students in world affairs, dispute resolution and debate, was established in 1996 and is a unit of FAU’s Peace, Justice and Human Rights Initiative. To date, the program has been awarded 19 national and international awards for academic excellence.

“The 2017 delegation worked diligently throughout the semester in preparation for nationals,” said Jeffery Morton, Ph.D., professor of political science in FAU’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters. “Their determination, professionalism and unbridled ambition were on display during the weeklong completion. I am so very proud of our students and delighted that their participation in the competition was recognized with the Distinguished Delegation Award.”

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. Professor and Foreign Policy Association Fellow Jeffrey Morton directs the program, which will next compete in Nationals in Washington, D.C. in November.
