Model UN is a class offered every spring semester seeking students interested in their government or working for the United Nations.
Each year the group travels to San Francisco for a conference. Every student is then given the opportunity to represent a country and delegation in their presentation. Here you are the physical representative and you have to be able to negotiate with other countries while keeping in mind what your country would do for their own economy. The skills you will learn from these opportunities include; collaborations, leadership skills, public speaking, negotiation, and plenty more.
At these conferences students also have the opportunity to connect with alumni and those who work for the United Nations. Many are able to forge career paths thanks to this experience.
This is all about hands-on experiences and developing skills to grow students in their future endeavors.
