Join us on September 17 for stimulating debate, intelligent conversation, and the opportunity to learn more about the intriguing world of Model United Nations.
Model United Nations is a fun and dynamic atmosphere for students to learn about issues from around the world. More than textbook learning, students learn the dynamics of debate and working together to form resolutions.
