Model United Nations at UCLA

Since 1950

Model United Nations at UCLA provides a forum for discussion of international relations and events through dynamic and academically stimulating simulation of the United Nations. We host two major Model UN conferences annually, and provide opportunities for members to travel nationally and internationally to compete in collegiate MUN conferences. MUN at UCLA holds weekly general meetings and frequent social events featuring guest speakers, conference and travel training, discussion of international events, and more.

Participation in Model UN activities promotes desirable and marketable traits such as public and impromptu speaking, networking, international engagement, and creative problem solving.

BruinMUN, our fall quarter high school conference, brings approximately 1000 high school students to UCLA for a weekend of debate, healthy competition, and fun. The conference, entering its 21st year, exposes high school students to UCLA and provides leadership experience for our staffers.

LAMUN, our spring quarter college conference, has an eight year history. Several hundred participants from dozens of domestic and international colleges and universities converge in Los Angeles annually to simulate UN style debate in a variety of unique, “crisis based” committees.

Our travel team is open to all and sends delegations to several conferences annually. Unlike many other MUN programs, members can try out for each conference.

Our primary goal is to continue growing and improving our conferences, travel team, and events. We strive to provide a consistently high quality experience at no cost to our members.

BruinMUN 2016: Fashion Edition

Written by Nis Hamid

Over the course of the weekend, we saw continuous debate and diplomacy. However, there is one thing that is often left out when considering Model UN--the fashion. We have all heard the words “western business attire” many times in preparation for this fun-filled weekend. These delegates and staffers have taken to both ends of this fashion spectrum. Some have chosen to embrace it in all its profession glory, while others implemented some interesting spins on the classic business ensemble.

As we all know, politics and international relations are rarely black and white, but that does not mean that your outfits can’t be.

From choosing to keep it cool and classy with grey to adding a pop of color, BruinMUN delegates were killing the fashion game left and right.

This delegate’s outfit game was on fire, good thing he was conveniently standing next to a fire extinguisher.

These floral print dresses are almost as lovely as the smart, capable young ladies donning them.
