Model United Nations (also known as Model UN or MUN) is an activity where participants are able to gain first hand experience on the complexities of international affairs and diplomacy by simulating the United Nations (UN).
At MUN conferences, delegates (aka students) represent an assigned country and its policies. While acting as these countries, delegates work together with other delegates (who are acting as other countries) to come to a resolution on the topic set before their committee.
Conferences simulate a wide variety of UN committees, from large General Assemblies to smaller, more specialized committees such as the Human Rights Council. Topics at conferences range from Nuclear Disarmament to Fighting Worldwide Poverty to Combatting Climate Change. This range offers participants a chance to debate a wide variety of topics, and choose ones they have an interest in.
Aside from learning about international affairs and the current challenges the world faces in tackling world issues, MUN offers students an opportunity to further develop research skills, public speaking skills, debate skills, and the ability to compromise. MUN also opens up a world of connections as our teams travel to participate in conferences across North America, including New York, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, and San Francisco.
