Congratulations! We are proud that you will be joining Model United Nations for the first time. You are about to embark on a life-changing journey that will help you to develop confidence in leading others, a stronger awareness of global issues, and the chance to make new friends from around the world. Model UN is a valuable experience that can help you attain college credit, find your first job, and become inspired to change the world. Most importantly, MUN is FUN!

Model UN is an academic simulation of the United Nations where students play the role of delegates from different countries and attempt to solve real world issues with the policies and perspectives of their assigned country. For example, a student may be assigned the United Kingdom and will have to solve global topics such as nuclear non-proliferation or climate change from the policies and perspectives of the UK.

Students can attend Model United Nations conferences around the world. These conferences are organized by universities, high schools and non-profit organizations. Once a team has registered for a conference, it receives a country to represent. Each student on that team will represent that country in a different committee with different topics.
