We are pleased to announce that priority registration for the 9th annual Chicago International Model United Nations (CIMUN) is now officially open. CIMUN IX will be held December 6-9th 2012 at the Fairmont Hotel in the heart of downtown Chicago. CIMUN is a groundbreaking educational political simulation for high school/secondary students hosted by the Model United Nations Development Organization (MUNDO), and is one of the largest independent Model UN conferences in the United States.
At the core of the CIMUN philosophy is a strong focus on realism and innovation, with our primary goal being the accurate portrayal of the challenges faced by real-life diplomats and politicians. All committees at CIMUN feature a fully-integrated crisis simulation, forcing delegates to think on their feet and work as a team between multiple committees to solve demanding international problems. The result is an unconventional conference that immerses students in a global context, and makes CIMUN a truly one of a kind Model UN experience.
What Makes CIMUN Unique:
- Fully Integrated Committees
Students are able to work together across committees as national delegations.
- Interactive Crisis Simulations in All Committees
Challenging scenarios and live updates keep delegates thinking on their feet.
- Diverse and Talented Staff
Along with university students, our staff also includes graduates and professionals with real world experience.
- Extensive Use of Media and Technology (Check Out Our Videos)
Highlights include a real-time news ticker, and even a student run TV news station.
- Prime Location in Downtown Chicago
Our AAA Four Diamond hotel is just minutes from many of the city’s top sights.
- Complimentary Continuing Education Program for Faculty (New for 2012!)
Fully Certified Program for Advisors to Earn Credit Towards Professional Recertification
This year, our conference will feature 20 innovative committees, most with 15 delegates or less, and a historical simulation set in 1950 that will place students in key decision-making roles during the formative days of the Cold War. Our unique simulation-driven model gives delegates in all committees the opportunity to make world-shaping decisions in real time, and requires them to think critically beyond the bounds of any one topic to best represent their national interests.
