United Nations?

What is

Strictly speaking, Model United Nations is a format for simulating the United Nations.

However, "Model United Nations" is usually used to describe the extracurricular activity practiced by students at schools across the globe. It can be found everywhere from the Ivy League to the University of California, from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México to Cambridge, and from high schools to colleges across the world!

Debate is integral to MUN, but students do not debate abstract ideas. At MUN conferences, there are multiple committees in which students must design plans for tackling a world problem, fight to pass those plans against others', and see their plans' results in simulation.

Make no mistake; MUN is competitive. Every year, colleges throughout the US host conferences for hundreds –often thousands– of college students and give awards to the best participating individuals and colleges. However, MUN is also FUN. MUN's fast pace, its good humor, and the camaraderies that form at conferences are why it is such a beloved aspect of college life!

Historical Simulations

 

 

While historical simulation clubs aren't unheard of, they are certainly not where most WWII re-enactments occur on college campuses! Nearly every Model United Nations Conference features various "crisis committees" in which teams of participants take the roles of heroes and villains from the past and present to duke it out in history's most epic confrontations!

The Roman Empire, Al Capone's Chicago Outfit, the USSR, the Axis Powers, The Ministry of Magic, and the Galactic Empire are ALL playable committees at MUN conferences!
