Forum to explore Model U.N. Club experiences

Dr. Christopher Churchill, Alfred University (AU) professor of history, along with some of his students will be speaking about the University’s  Model U.N. Club as a part of Alfred University’s Bergren Forum Series.  The presentation will take place on Thursday Sept. 26at 12:10 p.m. in Nevins Theater, Powell Campus Center. The event is open to the public free of charge.

Churchill and the AU model U.N. Club took a trip to Montreal, Canada last summer to attend an international student debate/convention where current events and politics were discussed with peers from across the globe.  They also spent part of the trip touring the French-speaking city. The lunch-time presentation will focus on the time spent at the convention and in Canada as well as what the Model U.N. Club is and what is has to offer as an experience for students.

Churchill earned a bachelor’s degree in history from Concordia University.  He continued his education and received a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in history from Queens University,  Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Along with teaching at AU, Churchill has been published on numerous occasions including in the “World History Encyclopedia.”


The Bergren Forum, sponsored by the Alfred University Division of Human Studies in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, meets Thursdays during each academic semester at the University. Participants are encouraged to bring a lunch; coffee and tea will be available.
