There are two ways to participate in Model UN at Trinity
University: MUN class and MUN club. At the meetings students build skills in
diplomacy and compromise, hold practice simulations, discuss current world
events, plan for conferences and organize fundraising efforts.
4103-1 Model United Nations is one-hour credit course (pass/fail) offered in fall and spring semesters and is
designed to introduce students to the structure and practices of the United
Nations through local development of practical, competitive models which
reflect the functions and missions of that institution. As such, the
course is largely student-driven with many key organizational and policy
decisions made collectively by the class. The lessons allow students to become
immersed in international affairs, globalization and multilateral diplomacy
while building essential public speaking and debating skills. Students in
class research a country, investigate international issues pertained to that
country in contrast with its allies and opposition and develop solutions to
world problems and take on roles as diplomats. Select students in class
participate in regional, national and international conferences.
Trinity MUN Club is
an approved Trinity Student Organization and its purpose is:
educate students on international diplomacy allowing them to become better
familiarize students with different political, economical, and social aspects
of the United Nations and different organizations.
prepare students to become contributing members of the international community.
develop communicational skills and a greater understanding of international
relations among students.
