Through our close collaboration with Harvard undergraduates, there is now an official undergraduate club called the Harvard College International Negotiation Program. This group of motivated students works with INP to bring workshops, information, and other opportunities to students across the College and around the world. This group also serves as a platform for INP to mentor a next generation of negotiation scholars and practitioners: students in the club assist INP with research, workshops, and event planning, providing students an up-close perspective on the processes of negotiation and conflict resolution.
There are already concrete outputs from this group. For example, members of the club have worked with Professor Shapiro and associates to bring negotiation tools to the international Model United Nations program. Professor Shapiro delivered a plenary speech to 2000 high school students at the UN General Assembly, and also worked with Harvard undergraduates to provide tailored negotiation workshops for Model UN faculty advisors in New York City during the conference, thus spreading the tools of negotiation to thousands of young leaders around the world.
