Welcome to NAU Model United Nations

Northern Arizona University Model United Nations is an elite academic club designed to promote an interest in and an understanding of the inner-workings of the United Nations. With a membership of over 30 students, NAU Model UN has excelled in academic conferences at UC Santa Barbara, UC Los Angeles, and World MUN in Sydney, Australia.  Together this student run organization trains in the field of debate, research, and resolution writing in order to become competitive in these conferences and win awards in their respective committees. NAU Model UN has consistently won awards at these conferences and even received the highest honor of Best Delegate at UCLA in Spring 2013. Collectively through representation of different countries, fierce debate, and participation in national and international conferences, NAU Model UN has helped train future generations for their new careers in International Relations as well as promoted a necessary new voice in the global conversation.
