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 Disarmament and International Security, Food and Agricultural, Economic and Financial, to Social Humanitarian and Cultural. Each committee has their own respective topics to which 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, IL. 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.
This year's executive board includes:
President: Geoffrey Dyck
Vice-President: Nazario Dos Santos
Secretary/Treasurer: Anders Nyberg
Fundraising Chair: Josie Bellrichard
