Model United Nations

 

What is Model UN?

Students take the role as delegates from assigned countries and tackle international issues in a simulated United Nations committee through research, public speaking, and problem solving. Specific topics for each committee will be presented with delegates researching and developing a position to address the topics based on the background of their assigned countries. During the committee, delegates will go through the process of debate, collaboration, and consensus building with other delegates to draft, sponsor, and pass resolutions to address the specific topics.  

Previous Model UN topics?

Human rights violations, weaponization of space, market access and trade, heathcare with infectious diseases, counter-terrorism, human and drug trafficking, education in developing nations, refugee rights
