The Best College Model UN Teams: 2011-12 World Division Final Rankings Top 75

by KFC on May 13, 2012

Which college Model UN teams are the best on the circuit? We devised a rankings system that answers this question in order to recognize the top teams on the college circuit for their accomplishments.

Please read the revised methodology article first before jumping into the rankings. We clarify in the article our purpose for doing rankings, our philosophy that drives what we value in the rankings, and improvements in our methodology. Please note that these rankings are for what our methodology describes as the World Division and does not capture results for all of college Model UN. We consider teams that won Outstanding Delegation at NMUN to be the best in the National Division. With that said, here is the World Division Top 75!

The Best College Model UN Teams: 2011-12 World Division Final Rankings Top 75 “Honorable Mention”

There were over a 100 teams that won individual awards at World Division conferences this year. The top 75 is separated itself from the rest by winning those individual awards at the more competitive conferences. There are only marginal differences between the teams’ scores so we decided to tier the entire top 52-75 instead of ranking them by individual places (it starts at #52 because there’s a tie between two schools for 50th place). Again, here is the methodology.

The Top 75 (52-75)

  • American University
  • Arcadia University
  • California State University, Northridge
