Model United Nations

    Model UN here at Geneseo seeks to educate students about international politics and diplomacy- particularly in regards to the United Nations. They attend several conferences, hold on-campus events, have educational meetings, and participate actively in new member recruitment. A major objective of the organization is to empower students by improving their public speaking and research skills. We also make special efforts to reach out to the campus community- in order to bring matters of international politics to the campus community.

Model European Union 

    Model European Union is another simulation based club at Geneseo. Students participate in one simulation yearly. The site of the simulation alternates between SUNY Fredonia and Europe. In 2006, the simulation took place in Prague, Czech Republic. An important feature of the simulations is the joint participation of American and European students. PLSC professors prepare students for their Model UN and Model European Union programs through practice simulations, student presentations, and discussion of assigned readings. They accompany the students to the actual simulations. Students also engage in fundraising activities to defray expenses.
