Why join BU’s Model UN?

  • The Bloomsburg University Model United Nations (BloomMUN) program is a simulation for better understanding global issues. BloomMUN is an opportunity for high school and university educators to work together to put into place a powerful vehicle that will prepare our students to meet the particular challenges of today’s world. Model UN stimulates awareness of global issues and provides students at all levels of education with the research, analytical and problem-solving skills necessary to active and full citizenship.
  • According to the United Nations, today more than 400,000 middle school, high school, and college/university students around the world participate in Model UN simulation.
  • Many of today's leaders in law, government, business and the arts participated in Model U.N. during their academic careers – from U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer and former World Court Justice Stephen M. Schwebel to actor Samuel L. Jackson. Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton is a Model U.N. veteran as well. Some Model U.N. exercises take place in the classroom and others are school wide.
