Overview

Self-reported by organization

"I am frequently asked:  'Why simulate the United Nations?' The answer, I believe, is obvious.  Young people need to be motivated to become aware of global problems because they ultimately affect us all.  The Model UN is unique in that it affords every participant the opportunity to learn about issues beyond their own immediate lives, and it provides experiential learning in terms of how young people should address these problems, and how as global citizens, they should begin thinking about solutions in a collective and collaborative way.  President John F. Kennedy once stated that everyone everywhere must strive to achieve 'genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life worth living, the kind that enables...nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life...for all men and women, not peace in our time, but peace for all time.'  His words still resonate.  Join us. "

Program 1

National Model United Nations

The National Model United Nations Program provides diverse groups of informed students and faculty a forum for addressing global concerns in a "real world" context.  Model UN Conferences address important issues including regional conflicts, peacekeeping, human rights, women and children, economic and social development, and the environment.  Our goal is to provide a better understanding of the inner workings of the UN as students build skills in diplomacy and compromise.  More than 6,000 university students from six continents attended our programs in New York City, Washington, DC, and one international location annually.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"During the 2014-15 academic year, the National Collegiate Conference Association (NCCA) provided more than 6,000 university students from six continents experience-based educational programs that further understanding of the United Nations and contemporary international concerns.

Our National Model United Nations (NMUN) programs are an international forum for students to discuss and debate pressing global issues.  These experiential learning opportuities provide participants with the insights needed to become better global citizens and the future generation of international leaders.  More than half of NMUN participants come from outside the United States - allowing delegates to find common ground with peers from a wide range of backgrounds. 

The NCCA is grateful to the dedicated individuals, past and present, through whose gifts of time and resources our programs have flourished.  We are proud of the continued quality of NMUN programs organized with the help of our program partners.  We acknowledge in particular the UN Department of Public Information in New York, the Osgood Center for International Studies in Washington, DC.
 
Through program expansion and internaitonal partnerships, we hope to meet growing student interest..

I encourage you to visit nmun.org and consider ways you can be more involved in our work.

Peace,

Michael Eaton, Executive Director"
