The MUN Program serves as an exciting way to learn about world affairs and international politics in true-to-life simulations. MUN provides a unique atmosphere for students to develop their skills in public speaking, teamwork, leadership and communication. Everyone gets the chance to work with a diverse group of people from around the world in international academic conferences.  Students also get a chance to meet with real diplomats at their embassies and get to visit several places, including the United Nations, Congress, and the White House.

MUN has three components
1.  Classes
2.  Traveling Teams
3.  Academic Conferences

Classes

 

 

MUN students take a series of classes to understand the United Nations and international issues. Lecture topics range from learning about international relations to the internal politics of specific countries.  MUN students also learn about their country assignment and the rules and procedures of each conference

Courses include:
POLS 90: Model United Nations
POLS 110: World Politics
POLS 111 Global Issues
POLS 112: Comparative Politics
POLS 113: Politics of the Middle East and North Africa

Traveling Teams

Students who desire to be a part of the MUN Program at VVC must fill out an application, take an objective exam, provide a writing sample, and complete an interview.  Once students are selected, they are then assigned to a specific traveling team that participates in a particular academic conference.  In addition, they are assigned to a specific committee within the conference, and depending on the conference, assigned a committee partner. 

Once students are assigned to a traveling team, they are expected to research their country assignment and develop an intimate enough knowledge so that the student can best represent their country at the conference.  Students will be asked to write a position paper on their committee’s topics, develop policy prescriptions, learn about the conference’s rules and procedures, and develop their speaking skills.

Students will have the opportunity to attend several academic conferences including

1.  National MUN – New York
2.  National MUN – Washington, DC
3.  Model Arab League – West Coast
