Details

Model United Nations at the University of Illinois (MUNI) is an educational activity steeped in tradition. For decades, Model United Nations has taught students about international relations and global politics. As world has become more globalized and interconnected, the value of Model United Nations has increased exponentially as knowledge about foreign affairs has become an integral part of creating a well-rounded citizen.

In the spirit of this rich tradition, the Illinois Model United Nations competitive team established its high school conference with the purpose of introducing high school students to the United Nations, foreign affairs, as well as negotiation. Today, MUNI blends its educational focus with healthy competition to create a challenging as well as intellectually stimulating experience.

MUNI Conference Model

While other conferences focus strictly on either education or competition, MUNI is different because of its unique conference model. Due to the fact that the members of Illinois Model United Nations spend their time on the collegiate circuit, MUNI adapts the collegiate circuit model for the high school audience. Moreover, this enables MUNI to better emulate the real world while building a competitive atmosphere. MUNI challenges delegates to strike the balance between individual action, consensus building, idealism, and pragmatism.

Stimulating Committees

MUNI features a diverse mix of committees. The conference offers committees for delegates of every persuasion. Thus, MUNI is committed to having a wide variety of forums for debate. Their Crisis Directors and Research Directors work closely with their Secretariat and other staffers to provide committees with various educational themes, subject matters, and time periods. In the interest of variety, they design Crisis committees, General Assembly committees, and even a Crisis-General Assembly hybrid committee. MUNI offers something for every delegate regardless of interest or skill level. This year, they will be drastically increasing their focus on instilling in delegates the educational and skill building value that Model UN offers from the time they receive their background guides through closing ceremonies.
