National Model United Nations (NMUN)

"Being part of National Model United Nations for two years has taught me leadership skills, diplomacy, and other cultures. The program helped my networking skills and overall has made me a more open minded, and diplomatic person. Thank you, Professor Armstrong and Kingsborough for having this one of a kind program. For future students interested in joining, do it! You don’t need to be a political science expert to join; you just need the passion and drive to help make changes in our world."

- Monica Mendez, 2015 Head Delegate and 2014 Participant

With over 4,000 university students from all over the world participating, NMUN is the largest and most authentic simulation of the United Nations (UN). Located in New York City, it takes place annually and is partly held at the UN facilities on the East River. The full expenses are covered by the college.

The goal of the NMUN simulation is to provide students (from over 250 international universities) with a better understanding of the inner workings of the United Nations as they build skills in diplomacy, negotiation and compromise. The structure, organizational design and agenda are set so that the conference is as realistic and comparable to actual UN conferences as possible.

Students interested in participating in the NMUN must apply (click here for the online application) and once accepted must take the 3-credit International Organizations course, taught by Professors Reza Fakhari and Rick Armstrong, which prepares them for effective participation in the NMUN.
