Tips for Preparing

2020 Model Senate Foreign Relations Committee

The first step in preparing for Model Senate is researching the four roles that students can assume for the program - more information on each role can be found at the link on this page titled "Student Roles and Responsibilities". 

Research each of the four roles, and think about which roles best fits you. When your school has determined all of its desired roles, please register for the program at the Model Senate homepage. 

After you receive your role and committee assignment, the next phase of preparation is researching the biography, history, and relevance of your assigned individual and subcommittee. Knowing how your assigned character has voted, written or argued in the past is crucial to accurately portray their view. In addition, you should research the topic assigned to your subcommittee, as a comprehensive understanding of the topic is necessary for a successful program. 

More information, including topic and committee briefing papers, will be posted on the Model Senate Homepage in the coming weeks.
