What is Model United Nations?
Model United Nations (MUN) is an academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants about effective communication and multilateral diplomacy. The program is an opportunity for academic growth and skill development. As many as 400,000 collegiate students annually take part in MUN conferences around the world. Students represent the national policy positions of the 193 Member States of the United Nations, serving on committees such as the General Assembly and Security Council. There they write and advance policy papers and resolutions on key international issues such as security, peace, conflict, development, and environmental sustainability.
