Simulations


Model Arab League

Students have an opportunity to participate in Drake’s delegation to a regional Model Arab League. This simulation provides students with opportunities to learn about Arab and Middle Eastern politics and to gain practical experience of diplomatic work. Drake delegations have won several awards for their participation at these conferences.


Model European Union

Drake teams participate each year in Model European Union simulations.  The simulations provide participants with the opportunity to debate issues of global importance, with a diversity of students, representing different countries. They gain valuable negotiating skills, learn how the E.U. operates as a supranational organization, and experience the challenges of reaching agreement among diverse nations. 


Model United Nations

Each fall, students have an opportunity to participate in Drake’s delegation to the American Model United Nations in Chicago, one of the premier Model UN simulations in the country. This simulation provides students with opportunities to learn about major global issues and to gain practical experience of the challenges faced when diverse countries come together to negotiate agreement laws and policies on these global issues. Drake delegations have won awards for their participation at American Model UN.
