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 over 50 years, Montana Model United Nations (MMUN) has worked hard to achieve these goals. Each year, MMUN:

  • Organizes and staffs the two-day Montana Model UN High School Conference for 350 Montana and Idaho students
  • Provides background guides to Teton County Model UN in Jackson, Wyoming and to other Model UN conferences worldwide
  • Sends UM students to national and international collegiate Model UN conferences
  • Sponsors 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!
