The Luther Model United Nations (MUN) team has a strong commitment toward creating awareness on political, economic, social, and humanitarian issues that affect the entire global community.
Each year, the MUN team is assigned a country where 8-14 students represent Luther in a delegation. Students are broken up into a wide variety of committees, ranging from the Disarmament and International Security, Special Political and Decolonization, Social Humanitarian and Cultural, and Economic and Financial. Each committee has their own respective topics that they perform in-depth research on from the perspective of their country's delegation.
Each year, Luther students emulate the legislative processes of the United Nations at a conference hosted by the American Model United Nations (AMUN) in Chicago, Ill. Along the way, students will learn not only about their assigned country and that committee, but international law, parliamentary procedure, public speaking, diplomacy and compromise, and ever increasing importance of global citizenry.
