Committee chairs and council presidents play an important role in assisting delegates’ research process to create a fruitful conference. To fulfill these responsibilities, student officers receive help from faculty mentors who are passionate experts on issues of the conference. They guide students officers towards understanding topics in-depth as well as writing research reports.
Meet one of our faculty mentors, Ms Donna Frose who is the mentor of General Assembly 1, Disarmament and International Security Committee.
As the director of UNIS MUN 2019, Ms Frose is familiar with the structure of the conference. She is a DP History teacher who is an expert on global challenges and threats to peace that affect the international community.
When asked about her thoughts on the topics of GA1, Ms Frose shared:
“The issues for GA1 are really interesting and timely for our world today. I think that the issue related to the protection of cultural heritage sites in conflict zones is very timely with the current escalation of tensions between the United States and Iran. The rhetoric coming from President Trump of the United States threatening the cultural sites of Iran shows that this is not just an issue of the past and that the United Nations needs to have a focus on ensuing sure that the worlds cultural sites are protected.”
Ms.Frose further talks about her work with Jeongha Kimm – the head chair of GA1: “I am enjoying working with Jeongha as a student officer. He is capable and organised and with the research and work he is putting into the conference preparation I am sure that Committee 1 will be a success.”
Jeongha shares: “Ms.Frose guided me in the right direction by consolidating my array of ideas per topic. She has suggested different sources that I can look at for my research reports.”
