Model United Nations Club

The Model United Nations Club is a student ran organization that participates in the Midwest Model United Nations Conference in St. Louis, MO every spring semester. This club works with the LDRS 490/POLS 380 class on campus who also sends students to the conference. In a typical year Fort Hays State University students will represent 3 countries at the conference with several different committees.

The class/club is open to all majors and university students, this course is a "student direct educational activity." Students will participate in a Model United Nations simulation with others students from 60 other universities and participate in a five-day conference in St. Louis, Missouri this coming February. Students role-play as United Nations delegates addressing worldwide issues. (Most travel and conference costs will be covered by FHSU.)

Objectives include: students will have a deeper understanding and appreciation of government processes and systems (the UN), students will have a deeper understanding of a wide range of global issues, and students will gain valuable leadership skills like consensus building, negotiating, resolving conflict, and decision making. Below are pictures from the 2010 conference.
