What is Model United Nations

A Model United Nations (MUN) is an educational simulation of the UN System where students can learn about diplomacy and international relations. At a MUN Conference, students work as the representative of a country, organization or person and must solve a problem with other delegates from around the world. MUN teaches participants research, speaking, debating, and writing skills, in addition to critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities. It is meant to engage students and allow them to develop deeper understanding into current world issues.

Can students register for multiple weeks?

Yes! Students can register for multiple program weeks – students who complete the Diplomat Program can then attend the Ambassador, Crisis, or Student Leadership Programs the following week if offered. We also offer weekend trips at select locations so that students are supervised during the weekend between programs and have the opportunity to explore their program city after attending a week at the MUN Institute.
