Duquesne Students Win Awards at Model European Union

A group of Duquesne University students successfully competed at a Model European Union (EU) simulation held Feb. 15-16 at the University of Pittsburgh.

The team of 15 undergraduate students from Duquesne's Center for International Relations and the modern languages department participated as country delegates and observers, negotiating current EU policy issues with 26 other student teams.

The Duquesne students earned top awards for their representation of Finland and Bulgaria, as well as an honorable mention for their representation of Germany. Students were judged on their knowledge of the issues, their accurate representation of their country's interests and their negotiating skills.

The Model EU event is sponsored annually by the University of Pittsburgh's European Union Center of Excellence and European Studies Center.
