• Model United Nations (informally abbreviated as Model UN or MUN) is an academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate student participants about civics, effective communication, globalization, and multilateral diplomacy. In Model UN, students take on roles as foreign diplomats and participate in simulated session of United Nations committees and voting assemblies. Participants research a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions to world problems in the form of resolutions and crisis responses.
