My name is Victoria Mayer and I am beyond excited to be serving as your chair for the committee on Wilson’s Second Administration at UPMUNC 53. I was born and raised in Vienna, Austria and moved to Philly to pursue a BSc in Finance and Strategic Management as well as a BA in International Studies in 2017. I am proud to have been part of UPenn’s competitive Model UN team, Intercol, ever since my freshman year, having served as Deputy Director and having staffed several UPMUNC and ILMUNC conferences in the past. When I am not hanging out with my team, I am most likely to be found in a cute coffee shop with my nose buried in yet another book or taking pictures while backpacking around the world – some of my recent adventures include Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, Cambodia, and Malaysia. As an avid lover of politics, I am very much looking forward to a weekend filled with passionate discussions, sincere cooperation, and proactive solutions. Witnessing one of the most tumultuous times in political history, the time of Woodrow Wilson’s Second Administration is characterized by questions of power, social organization, and ideology, on both an international and a domestic basis. Dealing with the aftermath of World War I, Wilson’s administration is profoundly involved in the restructuring of power relations in Europe and it will be up to you to design a future in which unnecessary bloodshed can be avoided through stability and international cooperation. Simultaneously confronted with harsh criticisms from home, you will also be tasked with balancing opposing demands from both the political and public sphere. Presented with difficult decisions of how to maintain normalcy in midst of political chaos, Wilson’s administration will need to find its new center of gravity on the increasingly polarized political spectrum and will have to tackle a time of high uncertainty in wake of the creation of the LON and the popularization of anarchist movements. Additionally facing unprecedented circumstances such as the newly introduced National Prohibition Act and power struggles between the president and congress, this committee aims to identify constructive solutions on how to cater to the diverse needs and wishes of the increasingly more politically aware American public as emancipated women and political extremists get in on the act. Should you have any questions or concerns in the meantime, please feel free to email me any time at email@example.com .
Sincerely, Victoria Mayer
Welcome to Wilson’s Second Administration! My name is Gabrielle Cabeza and I will be serving as your Crisis Director. I am a sophomore at UPenn in the Huntsman Program majoring in International Studies and Business and studying the Spanish language. I was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and this will be my second year competing in Model UN. When not participating in MUN related activities, one can always find me sharpening my Spanish skills or participating in Penn Mock Trial. As a Cuban-American, the ability to be your CD excites me tremendously! The political refugee status of my grandparents as they made their way to America has encouraged me to remain informed about politics; as such, I am very excited for a fun and engaging weekend of debate!
Sincerely, Gabrielle Cabeza
Wilson’s second administration was dominated by domestic turmoil and international divide. With the end of WWI and the rise of the anarchist movement, the United States faced the first Red Scare. At the same time, Wilson’s administration was working to set up the League of Nations in order to prevent future international disputes. Domestically, Americans were fighting for women’s suffrage and an end to prohibition. In this committee, members of Wilson’s cabinet must work together to prioritize their actions in order to stabilize the United States. None
