WLC Arabic students represented the University of Utah exceptionally at the Model Arab League held at Brigham Young University on February 25 and 26
The delegation was advised by Shereen Salah, and the team included Hussein Saade (Fulbright Scholar), Brecken Carmen, Brandt Munk, Owen Benson, Diyan Durovic, Russel Jabber, and Claire Inouye. They won 4 "distinguished delegates awards", in a competition that hosted 6 institutions from 4 different states.
Model Arab League provides opportunities for student speakers of Arabic to network, collaborate, and dispute in a diplomatic setting. During competitions, students interact with many delegates from other universities. In simulations, they pass resolutions and debate issues in the Middle East related to social affairs, political matters, defense concerns, the environment, and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
