Model United Nations

Model United Nations is a student-led activity in which participants learn to simulate the workings of the United Nations and its various agencies. Our delegates attend several conferences each semester alongside representatives from other universities. Students regularly attend conferences in major cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle, and represent USD annually at the two premier North American conferences (both hosting delegations from around the world): Harvard University National MUN, and New York MUN (with sessions in the UN General Assembly). Model UN is open to all USD students, and students may enroll in the one-credit course POLS 480 (which is repeatable, open to all students, and counts as an elective toward the POLS and IREL majors) to help them prepare for conferences.
