Model United Nations
Moderator: Benjamin Schrader
The Model United Nations team engages in an authentic simulation of the United Nations system by learning about the UN system, the skills of debate, compromise, conflict resolution and negotiation.
MUN team members have fun learning about the workings of world diplomacy through the lens of current events. At Seton LaSalle, the team meets roughly once or twice a week to prepare for regional conferences which have been held at Carneige Mellon University, Duquesne University, Gannon University and University of Pittsburgh. Each delegation is assigned a country to represent at the conference. Members then participate in committees to design resolutions to solve world dilemmas.
Model UN provides students with a window into the world and its peacekeeping efforts. It allows each person a chance to lead and brainstorm solutions with other inspired students from their region.
