NIKITA KHRUSHCHEV’S PRESIDIUM, 1962
CRISIS MANAGER: ROSE DALLIMORE
CHAIR: ADITI JOSHI
As the USSR begins to navigate the rising temperatures of the Cold War, the Presidium of Nikita Khrushchev must address the complex events of one of the toughest years yet — 1962. This cabinet of ministers must balance combatting increasing threats from the United States, rejecting the bain of ever-globalizing capitalism, and quelling discontent in Soviet states and areas of international interest. All the while, it must ensure that Khrushchev and members of his Presidium remain in power, communicate with intelligence agencies to engage in the global war of espionage, and make decisions that benefit the comrades of this glorious union. Ministers better be prepared — the Soviet Union needs them now more than ever.

About the crisis manager
Rose Dallimore is a member of the School of Foreign Service Class of 2022, currently studying International Politics with a focus in Security Studies and a minor in Theology. She has lived most of her life in New York City (go Yankees!) and Chattanooga, Tennessee (home of the nation’s fastest internet) but is proud to call Washington, D.C. home, mostly for the epic amount of Ethiopian food and the random interactions she has with politicians on the street. She enjoys the TV show Community (watch the Model UN episode), hiking, love-hating on Tennessee, Spotify playlists, hot sauce, getting lost in new places, maps, and solid memes. She participated in MUN in high school and enjoys traveling on the college circuit, as well as staffing NAIMUN and our collegiate sister conference, NCSC. Outside of MUN, Rose serves on the GU Honor Council, writes poetry, and is a student researcher for the Free Speech Project. She is psyched to be the Crisis Manager for Khrushchev’s Presidium and can’t wait for what will be an unforgettable conference!
