Model UN

Learn how to be a future international leader with North Central’s Model UN program. And learn the diplomatic and negotiating skills to last you a lifetime.

You’ll immerse yourself in the history, culture, economics, foreign policy and politics of a particular country. In recent years, students have focused on Uganda, Sudan, Peru, Malaysia, Croatia, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Rwanda, Myanmar, Equatorial Guinea and Nicaragua.

You’ll learn parliamentary procedures of the United Nations (UN) so you can participate in two four-day national simulations—one in Chicago and another in New York City—that replicate the UN agenda. You’ll draft resolutions that benefit the country you represent and learn the art of diplomacy and negotiation in order to pass those resolutions. During the winter simulation, you’ll meet your represented nation’s ambassador or delegates.

You will also:

  • Develop critical thinking skills.
  • Gain confidence sharing ideas with large groups of people.
  • Understand and see the world from the perspective of a different country.
  • Learn the arts of diplomacy, negotiation and consensus-building.

The program focuses on one country during fall term and attend the American Model United Nations Conference in Chicago. During winter term, you can focus on a different country and attend the National Model United Nations Conference in New York City, where you’ll meet that country’s ambassador or delegates.
