On Saturday April 2, the History and Political Science department and Model United Nations student organization hosted the annual York College of Pennsylvania High School Model United Nations Conference (YCPHSMUNC). This conference is geared to promote a greater understanding of the role the United Nations plays in addressing international concerns, enhance student learning, debate, and provide a fun-filled and valuable day of learning and friendship.

  • What is the Model United Nations?

    Model United Nations is a simulation of the international diplomatic process which takes place within the United Nations. Students represent delegates from UN countries in a variety of committees as well as in the General Assembly.

    During the MUN, delegates will:

    • Debate current world issues by making speeches
    • Prepare draft resolutions
    • Negotiate with other member states all in an effort to resolve the committee issues and conflicts while attempting to solve problems in a peaceful and diplomatic manner

    Conference materials, including Parliamentary procedure, Background Guides and conference schedule will be sent with the country assignments.

     

  • What resources are available for research?

    Prior to the conference, each delegate must research the issues and prepare Position Papers which outline in paragraph form the country's particular view(s) on the issue(s). Researching for a Model United Nations conference can be facilitated by numerous online sources. (Most United Nation member countries have their own state, foreign ministry and U.N. Mission participants.)
