Word from the Program Directors
In a Model UN, our students assume the role of representatives on behalf of different countries with the mission to reconcile cultures, idiosyncrasies and interests that are defined, hypothetically, as divergent. The “delegates’” and “ambassadors’” task is to formulate tactics and strategies that benefit “their” countries and to take initiatives before the other Member States.
The MUN program provides a challenging and enriching opportunity for students to discuss current international issues and to view those issues from various positionalities. Members meet every Tuesday from 1:40 – 3:10 pm to practice debate procedures, resolution writing and to learn about different countries and theories of diplomacy.
To prepare for MUN conferences, students research assigned countries, discuss all their related topics, practice public speaking/debating as well as prepare their written statements on international issues.
2014 marked the inaugural year for MUN at NIS-American. Our distinguished delegates to the GeMUN were the only Egyptian representatives nationwide.
Upcoming conferences are announced and registration for conferences is available on the school website.
