Model United Nations

Model United Nations (MUN) is a simulation of decision-making processes of various councils and committees at the United Nations. It is widely adopted by many universities across the world for students to learn about world governance and issues such as terrorism, human rights, and organized crimes using a very hands-on approach. Our MUN program started with a group of 15 students who attended the Alamo Model UN conference hosted by the University of Texas at San Antonio in November 2017. Our Model UN society is now one of the most active student organizations, and we will host our own debate competition in April of 2018.

There are many benefits of participating in the MUN program. You will be able to 1) gain extensive knowledge about how world governance operates; 2) understand critical issues across the globe, ranging from security to socio-economic to environmental issues; 3) learn how to act professionally; 4) negotiate diplomatically; 5) meet students from different universities and high schools; 5) engage in interdisciplinary research; and 6) improve your resume with this action-based learning program.
