    Model UN

    Model United Nations conferences have been held in the U.S. and around the world since the inception of the United Nations in 1945. Although each conference is different in size, audience, and scope, Model UN programs all help students learn about the operations of the UN, expand their understanding of diversity, other cultures, and countries, become aware of global issues, and gain individual skills in research, negotiation, conflict resolution, public speaking, and diplomacy.

    Hamline University’s Model UN is a rigorous, academic program where students who are selected for the team have a chance to participate in the National Model United Nations Conference each spring in New York City.   The program is housed in the political science department, but undergraduate students from any major or unit can apply.
