Model United Nations
Consistent with the United Nations' goal to make the world a better place, the SAU chapter of Model UN is committed to providing St. Ambrose University students, faculty, professional support staff, and administrators a unique opportunity to address global challenges and to change the world in which we now live.
Model United Nations (MUN) is an annual conference at which various United Nations simulate key activities. Representing a variety of countries, students - called "delegates" - sit in on General Assembly committees, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council, the International Press Delegation, and the International Court of Justice.
By attending these key activities, students have the opportunity to explore a wide range of current global issues, such as those concerning international conflicts, terrorism, nuclear weapons, HIV/AIDS, human rights, the population, poverty, trade, energy, globalization, and the environment.
