About Model United Nations
Model United Nations (MUN) is a student organization which, since the 1960's has provided UW - Oshkosh students the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in the areas of negotiation and diplomacy to achieve a broader understanding of the causes of disputes and the necessary procedures nations must follow in order to arrive at solutions to world problems.
At Model UN sessions, students from different universities represent the various nations of the world. The sessions provide UW - Oshkosh students with an opportunity to meet students from other universities interested in international and global affairs, and to compare their level of knowledge and preparation with students from other universities throughout the region, the nation, and the world.
Through Model UN, students obtain "hands-on" experience by playing the role of a diplomat representing a nation of their choice, negotiating with other countries, and voting for their nation on key issues currently before the United Nations.
In Model United Nations Simulations, participating students draft resolutions, debate real issues involving today's problems, defend their country against the actions of foreign nations, and experience the give and take of world politics which is essential to negotiating mutually acceptable aggreements.
