Members of the Model United Nations Team are students uniquely chosen for their academic prowess, speaking ability, and writing skills. Our members are selected through an annual competitive process every September, consisting of a written application as well as a simulation practice overseen by the Officers of the team in order to judge each applicant fairly. The Model United Nations Team proudly includes students from several different colleges and majors, including history, government, biochemistry, psychology, film, chemistry, and journalism. In March, every member, veteran or not, represents New Mexico State University at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. On top of that, a team of veteran members will participate in the Erfurt International Model United Nations Conference in Germany for the first time in November 2019.
