Philip Lehmann

Function as a tutor: Advising this year´s tutor team and delegation for the challenges ahead.

Motivation: In my experience, NMUN offers - one of the few - unique opportunities to work in a multidisciplinary and multicultural team during one’s course of study at the university. Striving toward one common goal regardless of one’s background is key to making this world a better place. Every year I see the passion and effort every student puts into the NMUN project. The chance to support and prepare them to be better global citizens and see them develop through their participation at the NMUN conference are key drivers of motivation to me.

Life Motto: Stay hungry. Stay foolish.

It is an amazing opportunity to see the project structure from another perspective and to experience the team spirit and development of the new delegation.

Life Motto: Old ways won´t open new doors.

Seminarleitung

Prof. Dr. Monika Heupel

Date of birth: 21 November 1975

Position: Junior Professor for International and European Politics

Function: I teach the seminar “National Model United Nations – How the UN works”

Motivation: When I was a student, I missed the opportunity to be a part of a NMUN delegation. Teaching the seminar now gives me the opportunity to be part of NMUN, albeit in a different position. Plus, I have always been a big fan of the UN, despite its problems and shortcomings. Discussing the UN with students is therefore something I value immensely.
