Model United Nations
MUN simulates the crucial business of the United Nations assembly. Students represent assigned countries as UN delegates and become versed in their history, economy, politics and culture. Large-scale university MUN conferences field topics facing the international community. At these conferences, students serve on various committees (e.g. world Trade organization, Security Council.) Preconference research and position-paper writing culminates in these weekend-long diplomatic simulations scored by the university students who chair the committees.
