Model United Nations provides students with the opportunity to develop solutions to today's international problems. Each semester our team represents a different Member State in the United Nations and researches its policies, including its positions on international security, economic development, sustainability, and social-humanitarian efforts. At Model UN conferences, students act as diplomats for their assigned nation within a particular UN committee. The goal of these conferences is to foster diplomacy and cooperation as students write resolutions and reports, just as Member States in the UN do. While the educational experience is the true reward of any Model UN event, at many conferences awards are given to teams and individual students who excel at adhering to the constraints of domestic and international politics, public speaking, and leadership within their committee.
