Special Reports on Model UN Circuits

The special reports will help compare and contrast three circuits that treat Model UN competitively: West Coast, Florida, and Puerto Rico

We have a series of special reports this week. The first report is a ten-page article on the key differences between West Coast MUN versus East Coast MUN. Many readers became very interested in this topic especially after experiencing the differences during NAIMUN. The second report will recap Kevin’s tour of the top high school MUN programs in Florida and share some of the things that make those teams successful. Finally, the third report will actually be a guest article from a student in Puerto Rico and will provide an analysis of the competitive circuits there. These articles follow our other special report on the sudden rise of independent Model UN teams. We’re also hoping that we can get a special report on Midwestern Model UN which has significant differences in how they do and view Model UN compared to other regions in the United States — we’ve reached out to a few readers to see if they’re interested in writing a guest post.

In terms of liveblogging, Ryan will be at Berkeley BMUN and KFC will be at Nationals NHSMUN this weekend. See you there!

University of North Carolina Model United Nations Conference (UNC MUNC) 2012 Recap

The University of North Carolina Model United Nations Conference (UNC MUNC) hosted its second annual college conference in February at its campus in Chapel Hill. The conference is very new and still growing but had positive reviews on its staff and organization.

Today marked the first annual Red Cedar Model United Nations, the middle school conference hosted by the staff of MSUMUN. After many months of planning, the day finally arrived. Deputy Under Secretary General of External Affairs, Chelsea Bollman, along with the rest of Secretariat, the chairs of SOCHUM and the Treaty of Versailles, and Conference Services worked tirelessly, and all of the hard work paid off. The bright, shining faces of the 40 middle schoolers, some waking up as early as 3:00am to drive from Leland, Michigan to Michigan State University.
