Club Info
UCM's Model United Nations Club participates in multiple simulations of real world United Nations conferences throughout the United States. The American Model United Nations Conference, held in Chicago every November, is one of the largest in the United States and is a favorite of the Model UN team. The club functions as a class club hybrid, with POLS 2535 Model United Nations offered for academic credit during the fall semester. No prior experience is necessry, as new delegates will spend the school year learning parliamentary procedures, as well as the critical thinking and public speaking skills necessary to excel at the conferences and in the real world. The clubs meets Mondays and Wednesdays from 4-6 pm in the Wood building. For more information, please contact the club's President, Dylan Ashdown, at or the club's academic advisor, Darlene Budd, at We look forward to hearing from you.
