Model United Nations

Club Description:
This club is a group of academically minded students who have a global view when they solve problems.  Students in this club have the opportunity to prepare for and participate in a four day Harvard Model United Nation simulation in January at Harvard University.  Students in the A.P. Human Geography elective class will be given the first opportunity, and after that the club will be open to other students with high grade point averages in their social studies classes. 

At HMUN, delegates gain insight into the workings of the United Nations and the dynamics of international relations by assuming the roles of UN representatives and members of other international bodies and national cabinets. HMUN is an exciting opportunity for students to debate issues that confront world leaders and to draft resolutions in response to these global issues. Participants will develop their abilities to work with others who are equally motivated and passionate about the topics of debate and to respond to global concerns.
