Members of the Model UN Team are students selected through a competitive application process each September, consisting of a written application with an essay and an interview with the officers with a simulation exercise. The Model UN Team proudly includes students from several colleges and various majors, including history, environmental science, psychology, criminal justice, foreign languages and journalism. In March, each member will represent NMSU before thousands of other students at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City.
