Model United Nation (MUN)
This is a series of courses for students who attend the annual National Model UN Conference in New York each spring. In the fall before the conference (per PSC 478), the UIS delegation forms and members gather information about the country they will represent. In the spring (per PSC 483), the delegation submits resolutions to the National MUN and attends the conference, a simulation of the United Nations Organization, where resolutions are discussed, debated, and voted upon by all countries represented in the council and committees. Professor Adriana Crocker (PAC 368, 206-8329) is the faculty adviser and instructor.
