To the the center of global affairs. Just a train ride away from Drew’s campus, on the banks of the East River, sits the United Nations, the world’s most notable international organization. Outside the headquarters building, colorful flags flutter, representing each of the UN’s 193 member states. Inside, a global staff are tasked with the promotion and safeguard of international peace and security. Here, and in Drew’s UN classroom just across 1st Avenue, students meet with diplomats, policy experts and UN Secretariat staff to understand how the UN functions. Visit offices of major non-governmental organizations—Human Rights Watch or the Population Council are two student favorites—to expand your knowledge.
