What is Model UN?

Model United Nations, often referred to as Model UN or MUN, is an extracurricular most commonly for high school students, but also available to college and middle school students.

Model UN is a simulation of UN organizations such as the UN General Assembly, UN Security Council, UNICEF, and others. Its participants take the roles of ambassadors from various countries and debate current issues. Model UN was developed in the 1950s as a way to give students hands-on learning in international relations, diplomacy, and the United Nations. Over 400,000 students around the world participate in Model UN each year.

What Model UN gives you

Knowledge

In this era of globalization, learning about the world is more important than ever. No matter what field or profession students enter, they will interact with people from different countries and diverse backgrounds. Model UN will help them realize the manner in which problems taking place halfway around the globe impact our lives, our country, and our communities.

Communication

There are few events that encourage the blending of thoughts and ideas more than Model UN. Attending a Model UN conference helps students to engage deeply in global issues, and express their views on them. Model UN helps students to learn how to put forward their own views while understanding and keeping in mind the views of others.

Leadership

Model UN conferences are opportunities to practice research, public speaking, teamwork, negotiation, and writing skills, all of which are attributes seen in leaders. Doing so in a safe and structured environment helps students to introduce themselves to the real world in a gentle manner.
