Political science students debate current issues in prestigious conference

In November, OLLU Political Science majors and minors competed via Zoom in the Eugene Scassa Mock Organization of American States (ESMOAS) Summit of the Americas program, a simulation of the Organization of American States and hosted by St. Mary’s University. 

In this competition, students researched and served as delegates for one of the member nations from the Americas, and proposed and debated international policy with students from universities in the Southwest and México.

Students Rogelio Pacheco (Head Delegate), Fatima Martinez, Amira Landeros, and Jacquelyn Joaquin served as delegates for Venezuela. Students Kayla Bolden (Head Delegate) and Jessica Pruneda served as delegates for Jamaica. Line-item proposals by Jessica Pruneda, Jacquelyn Joaquin, and Rogelio Pacheco were adopted into the General Assembly’s Joint Declaration.
