WELCOME TO DUMUNC 2017

Ad-Hoc Committee of the Secretary-General

The Ad-Hoc Committee of the Secretary General, designed for advanced delegates only, will be a fast-paced crisis committee encompassing social, political, and economic themes. Specific topics covered in the committee will remain secret until DUMUNC begins.


Chair: Ilana Weisman


Ilana is a senior from South Florida studying Public Policy and Political Science, focusing on social and gender policy. This is her fourth and final DUMUNC, and she’s excited to chair the Ad-Hoc Committee! Last fall, Ilana served as Secretary-General of Duke’s college Model UN conference, DISCon. She also serves as the Executive Vice President of Duke Student Government and runs an on-campus graphic design agency. While she’s been at Duke, she’s worked on several initiatives relating to identity and inclusivity, wrote her thesis on sexual health and sexual violence, and taught a class on sexual health. When she’s not competing in Model UN conferences or looking for a job, Ilana enjoys DSLR photography, cooking, and convincing people they’re feminists.
