Molloy Honors Students Visit UN
The group had two briefing sessions lead by UN staff members during their visit. The first was a presentation by Dr. Donald Lee on the topic of Poverty and Hunger, and the second briefing was on Human Rights and was presented by Ms. Martina Donlon.
Following the briefing sessions, everyone participated in a tour of the UN buildings. Students were able to observe paintings and sculptures around the UN that have been donated by member states, and well as learn more about the foundational pillars and the UN system in general. We had the opportunity to see the Security Council room, the Trusteeship Council room, the EcoSoc Chamber and the General Assembly Hall. The honors program students asked great questions throughout the day and were a pleasure for us to host. We are looking forward to additional educational partnership opportunities in the future.
