Participate in Model United Nations!

Model United Nations is a simulation of the UN General Assembly and other multilateral bodies. In Model UN, students represent UN member states and debate current issues on the organization's agenda. While playing their roles as ambassadors, student "delegates" make speeches, prepare draft resolutions, negotiate with allies and adversaries, resolve conflicts, and navigate the Model UN conference rules of procedure - all in the interest of mobilizing international cooperation to resolve problems that affect countries all over the world.


Any student interested in participating in Model UN for the 2015-2016 academic year
is encouraged to enroll in the following Fall 2015 course:


POLSC 401 Topics/Politics - Model United Nationals (1)
W 3:30-4:20 PM
114 Burt Hall

In this one (1) credit hour course we will learn about the United Nations, research our countries, write position papers on policy issues, and review parliamentary procedures. Enrollment in the course is not required for participation in Model UN, but it is highly recommended. Students with previous Model UN experience may audit the course. Whether enrolled or auditing, any student who wants to travel to Chicago must meet course requirements. All majors and class years are welcome. 


We plan to attend the following conferences:

November 21-24, 2015
Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers
Delegations: Algeria, Nicaragua, Czech Republic

XX UC Berkeley Model UN Conference
February 2016
