MUN is a dynamic and engaging simulation of the United Nations. As a worldwide academic organization, it hosts conferences all over the United States and the world. Students role-play as diplomats representing various countries as they debate, negotiate and innovatively resolve cutting-edge global issues such as human trafficking, terrorism, rising seal levels and much more.
At conferences, high-ranking politicians and current world leaders, such as ambassadors and current UN representatives, also address students.
Benefits of joining MUN are tremendous, especially in developing 21st century skills such as collaboration, critical thinking, and public speaking. As future leaders, MUN students improve their research and writing talents as they expand their global awareness and participate in conflict resolution. Diplomacy is the cornerstone of the program, especially with opportunities for students to work with their peers around the globe.
