The MSUMUN Difference:
The Michigan State Model United Nations Conference is an event set apart, raised above the rest. It is a conference that has developed a learning environment that enables students to not only become an active participant in the world around them, but also teaches life long skills. We have been able to craft an educational focus through our internationally recognized staff.
“I have done Model UN for all of high school, but I have never been to [a conference] like MSUMUN.”
A Developmental Difference
We have created a conference that is tailored to students looking to broaden their high school educational experience. We have refined the experience students will have while attending the conference with aid from experience gained from competing across the country and world.
While in committee, students will be assisted in developing the ability to collaborate amongst peers, negotiate between parties with strong convictions, along with drafting official documents. Delegates will also enhance their reasoning skills through trying to solve dynamic, multidimensional problems. We craft our committees in the hopes of drawing all students into participation and improvement . Both in General Assemblies and Crisis’, we are striving to construct an environment where delegates can work together to reach a common goal and learn to work together. Through assistance from both the staff and peers, students will be able to return home with abilities that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.
The Seasoned Staff
The Staff of MSUMUN has been trained through both an intensive process run by the conference and through the Model U.N. Team at Michigan State, the International Relations Organization. Staff members attend conferences in Washington D.C., Chicago, Montreal, Philadelphia and other cities across the continent and compete against schools like Harvard, Georgetown, Yale, and Westpoint. Our award winning team knows what it is to be a delegate in a room with fierce competition, and we have brought this experience back to MSUMUN with us. Through our training on campus and abroad, we have created a conference that has the most competent staff in the region.
The staff will work to strengthen delegate skills in the committee room and show students how to competently debate complex issues while also having a good time. Our team prides ourselves on not only winning awards, but also making life long friends. We go to conferences to forge connections with other schools and students. We bring this emphasis on camaraderie and fellowship amongst delegates to MSUMUN so all students can forge friendships and links across the country.
