Model UN like never before

We’re focused on providing engaging and meaningful experiences for our delegates. Historically hosted in April, with 4 committees, we offer a compact Model UN experience that focuses on the best of Model UN – enlightening discussions, heated debates, and an amazing community.
This year, we’re introducing a new kind of Secretariat training to set the foundation for a new RichMUN experience.

The secretariat experience is designed to develop skills and experiences beyond what would normally be accessible.

Our Philosophy

Competence

By enabling everyone to learn and become better than they were, we believe we are providing a MUN experience better than ever before – and it all starts with the Secretariat training.

Autonomy

To make the best of each individual’s skills, we believe in allowing our team to choose their own goals and have the support to see it through – even if that means a potential for failure. 

Community

No Secretariat, Staff, or Delegate should feel irrelevant. Everyone has a purpose and their own value to give, and we make sure to recognize it.
