What is Model United Nations?
In Model United Nations, students research issues on the UN agenda and role-play as member states’ ambassadors. They prepare draft resolutions, negotiate compromises, and navigate UN rules of procedure – all in the interest of learning cooperation and conflict resolution.
We Support Model United Nations High School Clubs
Our Chapter supports the Model United Nations club at Boulder High School. (For information on MUN at Boulder High, see the Wikipedia article.) A new club at Peak-to-Peak, a charter k-12 in Lafayette, has yet to seek our help. A club at Fairview High School is renewing its activity.
We Support Model United Nations at the University of Colorado
At CU, Model United Nations is a student-run club for those interested in diplomacy, world affairs, the inner workings of the United Nations, and solving the world’s problems. The club holds an introductory meeting in the fall, meets every week during fall and spring semesters, and attends conferences in Washington D.C. and New York. In addition, the club hosts a high school conference as well as a speaker event each year.
We Support Student Travel
The Boulder County Chapter has granted support to students attending Model UN conferences and related events in distant cities. After making ad-hoc grants for several years, the chapter raised donations from members for a student support fund.
