A Weekend of Approaching Problems Outside the Classroom: Brown University Simulation of the United Nations


Lincoln was well represented at the Brown University Simulation of the United Nations (BUSUN) this weekend. Students from around the world participated on the Brown campus for a weekend of informed, exciting debate. A central feature was to introduce delegates to issues and subject matters that may be less well-known but nonetheless important with a goal of building the foundations for becoming critical thinkers and articulate and diplomatic speakers.

Lincoln’s team was composed of 12 students from grades 10–12 who participated in a variety of present day, historical, and crisis committees, which included:

  • UN Women
  • Imperial Vienna
  • Australian Parliament (2017)
  • Cuban Revolution
  • Egyptian Government during the Arab Spring
  • British Parliament (1763-1769)
  • Sri Lankan Parliament (2017)
  • Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar (1964)
  • Cabinet of Cesar Gaviria, Colombia (1992)
  • High Commission on Refugees
  • Present Day NATO

The Lincoln team performed extremely well and came away with two awards. Elise Hasseltine won outstanding delegate in the Australian Parliament and Sasha Landau won Best Delegate in the Egyptian Government.
