Dear Delegates,

Welcome to ILMUNC! My name is Thomas Cosentino, and I’m so excited to join you in the Human Rights Council. While serving as your Chair, I look forward to facilitating a dynamic weekend for you all. I hope that you’ll find this weekend to be enjoyable!

A little about me: as the definitively superior Thomas, I have the privilege of keeping my full name. A Sophomore in the College of Arts and Sciences, I’m majoring in Political Science and possibly Philosophy, and am especially interested in political theory and law. In the International Affairs Association, I’m a member of INTERCOL, Penn’s travel Model UN team. I also serve on the Undergraduate Assembly, the lobbying branch of student government. Having competing myself, I know that conference can be stressful. I hope that you’ll find this weekend to be enjoyable and have fun in committee!

As for my interests outside of school, I’m an avid eater and sports fan. Hailing from Pittsburgh, you can catch me on campus missing a Primanti’s Sandwich and in my Penguins jersey fighting off Flyers fans.

I see this weekend as an opportunity to challenge you all, but to have some fun as well. Come into committee prepared for an engaging and exciting weekend. Please feel free email me with any questions or concerns at

Until January,

Thomas Consentino

Chair of UNHRC
The 36th Ivy League Model United Nations Conference

Dear Delegates,

Welcome to ILMUNC 36 and to the Human Rights Council! As your Moderator, I couldn’t be more excited to welcome you to this committee and see what kinds of solutions you bring to the table over the course of the weekend. We’ve all been working hard to make this the best ILMUNC yet, and I hope you all have an amazing time at the conference.

To introduce myself, I’m currently a senior at Penn from Villanova, PA pursuing a major in International Relations with a concentration in International Economics, and a minor in Fine Arts with a concentration in Graphic Design. Outside of the IAA, I’m a tour guide for Penn, a photographer for the school newspaper, the Daily Pennsylvanian, and a student fellow at the Perry World House, which is an international policy research center. When I’m not doing anything affiliated with those groups, you can probably find me eating Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, laughing at Twitter, or trying to convince my friends that Tom Holland is the best Spiderman ever.

Although competing in Model UN conferences isn’t a huge part of my time at Penn, I’ve loved being a member of the International Affairs Association and learning about how to give delegates a great MUN experience. I’m currently working as the Chief of Operations for ILMUNC Peru, an IAA run conference in Lima that will take place in August. I’m excited to work with Thomas over the course of the next few months to make our committee as interesting as possible. We’re really looking forward to meeting you all at ILMUNC and creating a dialogue within our committee that is both fun and thought provoking. If you have any questions about our committee or ILMUNC in general, don’t hesitate to reach out to any of us. I can’t wait to meet you at ILMUNC in January!
