Join us for a celebration of Professor Emeritus Richard Reitano's
 50th Anniversary of the
Dutchess Community College Model United Nations Program
Saturday, April 8, 2017
at the SUNY Global Center
116 East 55th Street, New York, NY 10022
(located between Park Avenue and Lexington Avenue)
12:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Dutchess Community College alumni who have participated in the Model UN are invited to attend this celebration of Richard Reitano's leadership and passion for the program.  There will be a mock Model UN program followed by a reception.

Model United Nations, also known as Model UN, is an educational simulation and/or academic competition in which students can learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations. DCC students have participated in this program in New York City and other cities throughout the United States.

"The opportunity for Dutchess students to participate in Model United Nations is possible only because we have faculty who believe in this program and witness firsthand the tremendous student development that occurs through hard work and high expections. Professor Emeritus Richard Reitano has been leading this program for nearly five decades and has influenced the lives of countless students throughout the years! Thankfully, Matt Murray, a relatively new DCC Instructor of Government, is working side by side with Dick to ensure the continuity and sustainability of this signature Dutchess Community College program." said Pamela Edington, DCC President

Model UN involves and teaches researching, public speaking, debating, and writing skills, in addition to critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities. Participants in Model UN conferences, known as delegates, are placed in committees and assigned countries, or occasionally other organizations or political figures, where they represent members of that body. They are presented with their assignments in advance, along with a topic or topics that their committee will discuss. Delegates conduct research before conferences and formulate positions that they will then debate with their fellow delegates in the committee, staying true to the actual position of the member they represent.
