Michigan State University Model United Nations (MSUMUN) is the premier high school conference in the Midwest. Over 7,900 delegates from 140 schools have attended their conference over the past eighteen years. Moreover, students from across the country have come back again and again to Michigan State University’s Model United Nations Conference. The staff of MSUMUN prides itself being both educational and exciting.
They are thrilled about their committees this year and their enthusiastic staff looks forward to hosting another memorable conference. Also, students will be able to explore a world-class university while visiting campus as well as getting a taste of college life on Grand River Avenue.
This past year, MSUMUN XVIII and RCMUN VII presented a variety of innovative and educational committees. In their General Assemblies, delegates worked together representing sovereign states to resolve challenging issues such as environmental sustainability, cryptocurrency regulations, waterborne diseases, childcare policy, as well as full-nuclearization in the Cold War. Delegates stepped into a plethora of unique roles in their Specialized Committees to discuss issues such as the Paris Agreement, continental defense initiatives, national self-determination, post-war refugee crises, housing disparities, and performance enhancing drugs.
In their Crisis Committees, delegates embodied a future Saudi government, the first term of Argentine President Juan Perón, Yugoslavia’s leaders after breaking from the Soviets, the Zaatari Refugee Camp in Jordan, the Russian Interim Government, as well as both sides of the Franco–Algerian War. With the support of over 100 MSU volunteer staff members, they hosted nearly 600 high school students and over 200 middle school students as they engaged in two of the nation’s premier Model UN conferences held on one of the nation’s most beautiful college campus.
