Through their involvement in Model United Nations (Model UN), students will both utilize and further develop their knowledge of current events, international relations, diplomacy and the United Nations. Specifically, students “serve” as diplomats, representing a nation or non-governmental organization, in a simulated session of a United Nation’ committee, such as the Security Council or the General Assembly. Thus, students have the opportunity to research a country; investigate international issues; and develop solutions to world problems after engaging in debate, deliberation, and consultation.
The Model UN team attends conferences/competitions at Blackburn College and McKendree University. Prior to these events, meetings are held as needed during study hall periods.
All Mater Dei students are welcome to join Model UN at any time throughout the year.
