RSO Guide: Model United Nations (MUN)
The Model United Nations is a student-led organization that simulates the actual United Nations General Assembly and is one of the most popularly practiced prestigious academic activities worldwide. It has an advocacy of global awareness through general discussions or debates that strive to find feasible solutions to global dilemmas. Partitcipants for each academic institution can be from middle school all the way up to university students. Each participating individual represents a particular country as its ambassador.
As ambassador, he must know an extensive bank of knowledge about the assigned country as he is to debate issues amongst other delegates based on his facts. Model United Nations is practiced all over the world in other schools and universities, from Harvard, Chicago University, to even the United States Military Academy at West Point. There are at over 400 international MUN conferences in 48 countries yearly with over 90,000 participants from the United States alone.
Only one year old, the Model United Nations Enderun still lags behind on member count but that does not mean no significant event has taken place yet. In fact, in Makati City, a nationwide MUN assembly was held and the group was in attendance. In terms of membership, all Enderun students are welcome to join. It is important that delegates are fully committed to the cause by allotting time and exerting effort for the organization’s diplomatic pursuit, and to have the motivational drive to tackle world issues and fix them.
