Model United Nations Program

UN Simulation (POLS 138) is a class in which students act as representatives of a selected country in a simulation of an actual United Nations session.

The course requires a two-semester comittment (fall and spring) to prepare for and then participate in the week long National Model United Nations Conference in New York City. The rigorous preparation for the conference involves research and writing assignments on the United Nations, the country/non-government organization being represented, and the issues selected for debate. Exercises in writing resolutions, caucusing strategies and using the rules of procedures are also integrated in the class structure.

Key benefits of participating include:

  • Sharpening writing and oral communication skills
  • Valuable experience in human dynamics
  • Multicultural awareness and sensitivity
  • Close and lasting friendships, within our delegation and with students from other schools and countries.
