Montana Model United Nations

The Purpose of the Montana Model United Nations

"The purpose of Montana Model United Nations is “to stimulate a deeper knowledge of the United Nations; to develop and establish a working understanding of the humanitarian, social, economic, cultural, legal and political problems of the world; and to provide free and open forum for the study and discussion of these problems.” --MMUN Constitution.

Secretary Opening Address

For more than 50 years, Montana Model United Nations (MMUN) has worked hard to achieve these goals. Each year, UM's MMUN students and faculty:

  • Organize and staff the Montana Model UN High School Conference for 300-400 students from about 20 Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming high schools.
  • Provide assistance to other Model UN conferences worldwide.
  • Send UM students to national and international collegiate Model UN conferences.
  • Sponsor campus and community presentations related to international affairs.

MMUN challenges students to reflect on important international issues, understand the inner workings of the UN, and develop their research, writing, public speaking, and negotiation skills. By bringing high school students to UM and sending UM students to collegiate competitions, MMUN contributes to the creation of a more informed local, national, and international community.

We invite you to participate!
