Model U. N. Club

Model United Nations is an international organization that allows students in college to experience what it’s like to be diplomats working on international issues. The main goal of a Model UN team is to go to conferences that simulate the workings of the United Nations. Once there, a delegation takes on the task of representing a given country and negotiating within the context of the UN on major issues such as global poverty and health and nuclear weapons. Students are able not only to learn about international politics and major issues of the day, but they hone their communication and persuasive abilities, all while working as a team to further their country’s goals. 

Cameron University students are invited to participate in Model UN at any time! For information on meetings and current happenings, search “Cameron Model UN” on Facebook or contact Professor Stuart Hooper at
