Brokering resolutions on global warming and human trafficking is all in a day's work for students in Cal Lutheran's Model U.N. class. In local meets and at the prestigious Harvard National conference each February, these CLU students debate pressing problems facing the planet while representing actual countries. Political science professor Gregory Freeland explains, "We represent Jamaica, and this year Haiti too, as they would represent themselves.
