About the Model United Nations
For decades, students from across the St. Bonaventure University campus have been working together in the Model United Nations to broaden their knowledge of the world around them through negotiation, debate, and diplomacy. With these skills they are able to represent nations from every corner of the globe in order to create awareness for the complex structures of the United Nations.
Students conduct research so that they can effectively represent countries' views, understand the multifaceted procedural structure of the United Nations that is modeled after the Roberts rules of order, as well as achieve experiences that will last a lifetime.
Model United Nations may be taken as a course at three different levels: POLS 104, POLS 208/209, and POLS 308/309. The courses differ by the level of participation and the grading scheme. Click on a course title, below, to see the course description.
Current students may consult my.sbu for course times and locations.
Conferences Attended by SBU MUN
For students and members to fully understand how the United Nations works it is required that they attend at least one conference per school year. At these conferences, students research and represent their countries' position within organizations of the United Nations such as the Security Council, the World Health Organization, as others. Students work to resolve issues that face the international community today such as the question of nuclear development in Iran and how to stop human trafficking.
