UN SymbolModel United Nations

Model UN here at Geneseo seeks to educate students about international politics and diplomacy. 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. They also make special efforts to reach out to the campus community- in order to bring matters of international politics to a wider audience. The department provides financial support to students to attend Model UN conferences in exciting locations such as Boston, Toronto, Chicago, and more!
