Model United Nations

The purpose of Model United Nations (MUN) is to promote democracy, diplomacy, global understanding, and civic engagement through participation in Model United Nations conferences and educational endeavors.

The Department of Politics and Government funds a limited number of students each spring for attendance at the Model UN student conference in New York City. Students interested in competing for available spots should take the International Organizations class in the fall, and they should consult with the faculty advisor in charge of Model UN, Noha Shawki.
