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.

BREAKING NEWS- JCC Peru and Chile: A Conflict of Two Cities

As the second day of LAMUN comes to a close, both the Peruvian and Chilean sides of the JCC were heating up.

The Chilean committee is at work making plans to attack the Peruvian territory of La Paz as the 2 committees enter battle mode. According to several delegates, Chile is highly confident in their ability to defeat the Peruvian side.

Although their specific plans were kept under wraps to preserve their advantage of surprise, their plan was described as “a Chilean hat trick” by the Vice Admiral of the Chilean Navy, Juan Jose Laforre. He goes on to say that they will challenge the Peruvian La Paz in a manner they have never seen before. Laforre concludes with a message from the Chilean committee, “My old friends, you have been duped.”

In the meantime, the Peruvian committee split their efforts between two plans--one for a potential attack on Chile, and another to protect their La Paz territory. Certain voices such as the Chancellor of Bolivia were against the idea of an attack, voicing major concerns for La Paz, while the Minister of the Interior of Peru was fully for it. Regardless, delegates also came up with creative techniques for defense and attack, such as using their territory to their own advantage.

Additionally, an anonymous source from one of the sides has informed us of a potential defection of a Naval Commander to the other side and his intent to take his whole naval fleet with him.
