Hey there, I'm Tetrah Clark, a Philosophy student at Clark University, set to graduate in 2024. I'm all about diving into the philosophy of libraries, communication, expanding the philosophical canon and technology ethics.
Last year, I had a rewarding time organizing ClarkMUN as the co-Secretary General. It's been quite a journey – my MUN career started off in middle school, and I even joined the fun at ClarkMUN X in high school.
Beyond MUN excitement, you'll currently find me donning the many hats of a Library Assistant and Resource Library Assistant at Clark University. I'm all about managing archival materials, leveraging tech for accessibility, and embracing the quintessential "librarian" vibe.
What I love most about MUN and everything I'm involved in is the genuine passion for learning, a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion, and a deep belief in the power of dialogue to bridge gaps and build understanding – values shared by fellow delegates. Can't wait to witness your diplomacy skills and creative problem-solving in action!
US Senate: Information Literacy & Academic Freedom
Education, perennially under scrutiny, sparks heated debates on what should be learned and who should have access to knowledge, resonating across American communities and the entire political spectrum. Information is the cornerstone of a free society, the National Forum on Information Literacy (NFIL) defines Information Literacy as the pivotal ability to recognize the need for information and effectively employ it for addressing issues. Lawmakers must intricately design and implement information literacy standards by considering evolving technological access, engaging with comminities, and balancing uniformity with flexibility. Allocating resources for instruction and technology is crucial to cultivate critical thinking and lifelong learning in students. In the era of information at everyone's finger tips, where misinformation and disinformation shape political and social landscapes, the motivation for information literate citizens becomes even more clear.Delegates are thus entrusted with the pivotal task of bridging political divides and crafting inclusive information literacy policies for their districts, collaborating with fellow legislators to shape a well-informed society through policy.
