What is a MUN?

The acronym MUN refers to “Model United Nations.”

MUN stands for Model United Nations. A Model UN at college level is a competition where students from different degrees debate representing different United Nations countries. Each representative, also called “delegate” participates in a committee where specific topics are discussed, going from social to economic issues, with vary many others in between!

The purpose of delegates in the committee is to find consensus among the other delegations and draft a working paper that, after further debate, will end up becoming a resolution on whichever topic they were discussing.
