Model United Nations (MUN) is an organization on campus that emulates the United Nations by dividing into different committees and discussing specific issues that effect the entire global community. This includes nuclear proliferation, cultural sensitivity, disarmament, poverty alleviation, torture, human trafficking, economic instability, environmental concerns, etc.
Each school will send one or more "delegations", meaning that there will be multiple students from each school representing a country, and researching two specific topic areas with a partner from the point of view of that country. They will then work with other delegations to write resolutions to pass about how to combat these issues.
We are currently assigning students to the different committees for our fall conference in Chicago, where over 1000 students from across the country gather to discuss these issues from the perspective of the country they've been assigned. If you're interested in diplomacy, public speaking, inter-religious dialogue, politics, writing, or anything of the sort, consider checking out the Model UN team! We will be having a brief meeting on Wednesday, March 19th at 7pm in Hovde Lounge for anyone interested in learning about the fall conference! We hope to see you there!
