Model United Nations

Model United Nations (MUN) is a one-of-a-kind experience for students looking to become more familiar with international issues and the workings of the United Nations (UN). At a Model UN conference, students assume the role of diplomats, each representing different countries in different committees and programs of the UN, and discuss various topics ranging from terrorism and nuclear security, to the environment and human rights. Working together with students from across the world, students develop solutions to many of the world’s problems and decide what actions the UN should take. In simulating the real-world conferences of the UN and in writing their own proposals to real-world problems and concerns, students learn about the challenges facing the UN and how to make the world a better place.


At Riverside Community College District Model UN, students not only learn to become good diplomats for MUN conferences, they also learn skills invaluable to their success in college and their careers. Through robust training held at meetings throughout the year, students will learn to become better writers, public speakers, communicators, collaborators, leaders and informed citizens of the world. Our training program truly sets us apart from other Model UN organizations and teams, and the awards we have received are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our students.
