Model United Nations is an international organization with chapters in many high schools, colleges, and universities. MUN provides an academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy, parliamentary procedures, and the United Nations agenda.
The participants role-play as diplomats representing a nation or NGO in a simulated session of an (committee) of the United Nations, such as the Security Council or the General Assembly. Participants research a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions to world problems.
The MIA chapter of the Model United Nations attended the conference at University of Michigan January 15, 16, 17, amd 18 and they did, ” a magnificent job!” according to their advisor, Br. Sundiata.
