About The Program

Our Model United Nations Week will be facilitated by UNC-Chapel Hill.

Students will learn how Model United Nations can be used as a vehicle for learning about the world around us, civic engagement, and personal growth.

Students will form partnerships and teams based on team-building exercises and engagement to solve social and global issues. In addition to learning about institutions and systems that shape international relations, students will develop practical leadership and presentation skills.

  • Parliamentary Procedures
  • Public Speaking
  • Independent Research
