Model United Nations Club
The Model United Nations Club (MUN) is for students who attend the annual National Model UN Conference in New York each spring.
In the fall before the conference, the UIS delegation begins to form and members gather information about the country they will represent. In the spring, 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. The simulations are as close to reality as possible. Each delegation attempts to take on the character, as well as the policy, of its assigned country and peace treaties, caucuses, and walk-outs by dissatisfied delegates are frequent.
