Tyler Collegiate Model United Nations

Statement of Purpose/Organization Description: The Model United Nations Program at The University of Texas at Tyler was established in 2006 to introduce students to international diplomacy and the structures and mandates of the United Nations in a simulation setting. Students attending Model United Nations conferences assume the role of a diplomat from a member state to the United Nations. Each student is assigned to a simulated committee in the United Nations and researches their represented state's policy positions on the topics under consideration within each committee. Once at the conference, students advocate for solutions to issues debated in committee that are in accordance with their represented member state.
