The Department of Political Science at Thompson Rivers University on Secwepemc Territory offers a unique opportunity for undergraduate students. Join us at our student-organized conference as we simulate a United Nations session to explore important issues and attempt to solve some of today’s most important problems!
A Model United Nations conference offers students the opportunity to learn more about real world international issues, and find growth by improving their public speaking, writing, and research skills. This hands-on experiential learning opportunity also facilitates working under pressure, critical thinking, and working against tight deadlines.
Throughout the conference, participants will engage in committee sessions where they represent their assigned country as if they were real diplomat from that country. They will work with their allies to create blocks to write resolutions in order to come up with solutions to the topics they are given. Participants ultimately gain a greater appreciation for differing viewpoints, work through the challenges of negotiation, and expand their worldview.
