Model United Nations exposes students to global issues at the forefront of U.N. debate. Simulations place student cohorts in the shoes of ambassadors, leading them to think and speak about world events from the perspective of nations. It is an interactive, meaningful way to learn about world affairs while developing skills like critical thinking, intentional communication, and measured decision-making.
All the while, students learn about the history, function, and future of the United Nations from a Ph.D. humanities teacher. Model U.N. scenarios are developed by the United Nations Association of the USA in partnership with the U.S. State Department.
This program requires no prior knowledge of global events. It is ideal for those who enjoy fun group projects, creative thinking, and realistic strategy games. It prepares students for an exciting future in business, government, politics, education, social work, and much more!
