    Overview

    Step into the shoes of global leaders & tackle pressing issues, enhance your public speaking & debate skills, get feedback from champion mentors & make friends who care about the world!

    In MUN students learn about global issues from different perspectives & collaborate with their peers to lead & create solutions together.

    Camps are held at Columbia University in NYC July 1-5 & July 8-12 (Day camp)

    Every day at the MUN Institute, students are challenged to make speeches, negotiate with others, and find solutions to global problems. They receive daily one-on-one feedback and encouragement from their MUN Mentors, who are the best students in college-level Model UN. And by the end of the week, students see dramatic improvements in their public speaking and communication skills, and their self-confidence.

    At the MUN Institute, students learn about the world’s biggest challenges, from civil war and extreme poverty to human rights and climate change. They step into the shoes of UN diplomats, represent different countries, and argue that country’s point of view — which is often different from their own. Students work together to see if, despite their differences, they can collaborate in the spirit of diplomacy and find common solutions to global problems.

    The MUN Institute seeks to create a global learning environment by inviting students from 40+ countries around the world. Students learn about different cultures, engage with people from diverse backgrounds, and create lifelong friendships that span countries and continents.

    After attending the MUN Institute, our students go back to school and lead their Model UN clubs. Our students have gained admission to the top colleges, including Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, and Georgetown. MUN Institute alumni have the confidence and the skills to be successful in high school, college, and beyond.
