Hello! My name is Jordan Dewar and I'm a sophomore in the College and Wharton pursuing one degree in Political Science and another in Business Economics and Public Policy. I'm also involved in the Public Policy Research Scholars Program concentrating in Health Care Public Policy. I'm very excited to be your chair for this conference and am looking forward to a weekend of substantive debate and the creation of new policies and solutions. This is my second year as a Model Congress Chair and my first year as one of the Penn MC National Security Council coordinators as well. I'm from Washington, DC and when not doing homework I enjoy trying to convince other people it should be given statehood. Outside of Model Congress I'm a member of the Penn International Affairs Association as a crisis director for our two conferences and a member of our competitive travel team, a member of the Ivy Council Penn Delegation policy team, a writer for the journal the Consul and occasional writer for the Penn Political Review, a member of Active Minds, and a member of the PIPAC Policy Committee. I also do research for Professor Michael Horowitz on the diffusion of advanced military technology and am the project lead for the North America Research and Summit Team for the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program. I'm more than happy to talk to any of you about the conference or Penn/college in general and you can contact me at I can't wait to get to meet you all, good luck preparing!
