AN OPEN LETTER TO SALEM COLLEGE STUDENTS ;
The Presidential Search Committee has begiln its
assignment of recommending Dr. Cuninggim’s suc
cessor to the -Board of Trustees. The challenge for our
committee is to recommend a person who will provide
innovative academic, managerial, and Christian
leadership, one who will continue to build on the good
work of Dr. Cuninggim.
Though we all regret President and Mrs. Cun-
ninggim’s leaving Salem at the end of this year, the
yvork of finding a new president must be carried on. The
Presidential Search Committee has already sent two
hundred letters out to friends of the College and state
and national leaders asking for suggestions for the
position.
At the conference,
delegates will take on the
roles of professional
diplomats. They will work
with other delegates trying to
achieve their own national
objectives as well as working
toward the necessary con
sensus for desired in
ternational action. The issues
to be simulated at the NMUN
will reflect political realities
in the international sphere.
We solicit your assistance. We recognize that some of
the stronger potential candidates may be individuals
who would not apply for the position unless urged to
consider it by others. Specifically, we would appreciate
your nominating candidates who by their record have
proven leadership aiblity in the field of higher
education and who are interested in the growth and
strengthening of contemporary women’s education.
We will receive nominations through December 31.
Please direct your correspondence to me in care of:
Salem Academy and College
Post Office Box 10548
Winston-Salem, North Carolina 27108
I am grateful for your consideration of our important
request.
Sincerely,
Thomas S. Douglas, III

Participants will have the
unique opportunity to receive
a briefing of their assigned
country’s permanent mission
to the United Nations. These
briefings, conducted by
members of the mission and
often by an ambassador,
provide an otherwise unob
tainable opportunity to gain
information and insight
concerning the delegates
assigned country and its role
in the UN.
The NMUN will be held
April 10-15, in New York City,
Until then, the Salem
delegation, under the
leadership of Dr. Pubanty,
will be exploring particular
issues and conflicts in the
international system. The
importance of diplomacy as
an instrument of policy in
world affairs cannot be
overstated, and a simulation
such as NMUN affords the
opporunity for direct in
volvement in the diplomatic
process.
