The Award-Winning Model United Nations program at TCU is a joint program of Student Development Services and the Department of Political Science. It offers students the opportunity to simulate the workings of the United Nations as representatives of one of the member-states of the UN. In their capacity as delegates to Model UN conferences, students research the policies of their designated country on a variety of topics, including international trade and development, terrorism, international conflict, weapons of mass destruction, human rights, and the environment. Participation in conferences also helps students to improve their negotiating, public speaking and writing skills. TCU regularly attends the National Model United Nations (NMUN) – DC conference each fall, and the
NMUN – New York conference each spring. TCU delegations routinely win awards for their participation in MUN conferences.
Select students have also recently attended NMUN – International conferences in Xi’an, China (2008), and Quito, Ecuador (2010).
Participation in this program is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn about the issues confronting the world in which they live from diverse perspectives.
