Model United Nations at Earlham College is a doorway to the world of international affairs. Through MUN, students are introduced to vital global issues and far-reaching international organizations. The Earlham College Model United Nations allows students to move from roles as spectators to firsthand participants who “become” diplomatic representatives and consider items from the UN system’s vast agendas. This cocurricular program at Earlham College has an excellent track record in helping students move into dynamic internships and jobs with international organizations from Amnesty International to the United Nations Development Program and all points in between.
Each year Earlham College hosts regional high school students on campus for a weekend MUN Conference. Through this outreach, Club members demonstrate to other young people that they can make a difference on important global issues. Keynote speakers for this even have included ambassadors and high-level UN diplomats as well as eloquent non-governmental activities. Earlham students initiate and complete all the logistical and programmatic arrangements for this event.
