Model United Nations Club

Model United Nations, also known as Model UN or MUN, is an educational simulation in which students can learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations. MUN exposes students to the opportunity to develop and refine a multitude of skills ranging from research, pub-lic speaking, debating, writing, critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership.

Participants in Model UN conferences (Grades 11 & 12), known as delegates, are placed in committees and assigned countries, or occasionally other organizations or political figures, where they represent members of that body. They are presented with their assignments in advance, along with topics that their committee will discuss. Delegates conduct research before their conference and formulate posi-tions that they will then debate with their fellow delegates in the committee, staying true to the actual position of the member they represent.
