2018 UNO Model UN Delegation

What is the UNO Model United Nations Club?

The University of New Orleans (UNO) Model United Nations (MUN) is a student organization that familiarizes students with the political, economic, social, and cultural functions of the United Nations. Our goal is to prepare students to be productive global citizens, to develop their diplomatic communication skills, and to increase their understanding of cultural differences both locally and globally. The Club’s primary activities are related to the National Model United Nations Conference in New York City each spring. All UNO students are invited to apply to become delegates and compete as representatives of UNO in this international academic exercise.

Why Are We Doing This?

The Model United Nations Club exists to involve students in conversations about international affairs. During each spring semester, students in the Club are given the opportunity to conduct research on issues facing the actual United Nations and to improve their public speaking skills. As members of the Club and as delegates to the National Model United Nations Conference, they will learn how to think, speak, and act as diplomats representing a specific assigned member nation of the UN. At the Conference, the Club members will compete alongside 5000 other delegates from universities all over the world for one-week, culminating in a final session that takes place in the General Assembly Hall of the United Nations in New York.  The purpose of these activities is to help our Club members become effective and confident community leaders, committed to making a difference in the lives of the people around them. 

This is our ninth year of participation in the National Model United Nations.  During our first eight years, we have received the highest honor (Outstanding Delegation Award) twice, the second highest honor (Distinguished Delegation Award) three times, one Honorable Mention Delegation award, four Outstanding Position Paper awards, and two Outstanding Delegates-in-Committee awards.

What Will Your Support Do?

Our primary goal is to ensure that all students who are selected to participate in the New York Conference can do so without having to worry about finances. Combined with our own University funding, your support will cover the lodging and airfare of all students. Most of our students already pay for their own tuition, housing, and every day expenses. We need your help in sending these students to the 2018 National Model United Nations conference. We want to give our students the opportunity to go to New York and experience the benefits of networking with delegates from all over the world. Your support will help us achieve this. Plus, all of your donations are tax deductible.
