Applicants for the Model United Nations Team undergo a 2-step process:
The written application will overview general information, previous public speaking and group experience and availability followed by a short 1-2 page essay summarizing two issues pertinent to the organization of the United Nations and the international community at large. Applicants will submit this packet along with a resume by a given due date, where it will be reviewed by the officer corps.
Upon review of the written application the officers will invite certain candidates to an in-person interview the week following the application deadline. Candidates will be asked general questions regarding themselves and their application, but the majority of the interview will consist of a simulation where the candidate will take on the role of a world leader in a given real-life conflict. The candidates will be briefed on the conflict and one of two world leaders they may be assigned a week before the interview and should independently research the positions and issues of the scenario. After the interviews are completed, candidates may be offered places on the team.
