Our Mission

The University of Connecticut Model United Nations is a student-run organization that aims to foster international awareness through its annual conference. Every November, hundreds of high school students gather at the UConn Storrs campus to participate in realistic committee simulations, engage in substantive debate, and learn from their fellow delegates. Our staff aspire to guide delegates toward understanding the values of cooperation, diversity, and compromise, while encouraging them to be active, compassionate leaders. As UCMUN prepares for its twentieth session, we continue striving to fulfill this mission and working to make our conference the best that it can be.
