Model United Nations (MUN)

Designed to broaden students' awareness of the world of international politics.

Model United Nations (MUN) simulates the procedures and substance of United Nations debates in an annual conference. Delegates representing a variety of countries sit on General Assembly Committees, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council, the International Press Delegation and the International Court of Justice.

MUN is offered for credit (PLSC 300: Model United Nations). Fall semester enrollment is a prerequisite for spring semester enrollment in Midwest Model United Nations. For more information please contact Jeff VanDenBerg, Coordinator, Model United Nations.

Drury's Model UN team did an outstanding job representing the countries of Nigeria and Liberia the week of April 11th at the Midwest Model United Nations conference in St. Louis.  At a conference with over 550 students from 52 universities, two Drury students took home awards for their work. Jimmy Proszek won both the "Outstanding Delegate" and "Delegate's Choice" awards in the International Atomic Energy Agency committee. Monroe Pate won the "Delegate's Choice" award for his work in the UN General Assembly 2nd (economic and financial) committee.

Congratulations to Jimmy, Monroe and all the Model UN students for their achievements.
