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.

Welcome to BruinMUN 2017!

Dear Esteemed Delegates and Advisors,

Alex Guziak, Secretary General of BruinMUN2017

Alex Guziak, Secretary General of BruinMUN2017

My name is Alex Guziak, and I am incredibly excited to be the Secretary-General of BruinMUN 2017. On the weekend of November 11 and 12, I look forward to welcoming over 1,500 delegates to UCLA’s beautiful campus for two days of intelligent debate and intense discussion. This will be our twenty-fifth installment of our annual conference, and our desire to hold a competitive, well organized, and educational set of committees will be as strong as ever. This year, we will host twenty five committees, consisting of a variety of general assemblies and crises. As in prior years, a portion of our committees will be designated specifically for novice delegates, and will be specially tailored to those that are seeking a gentle introduction to competitive Model United Nations.

BruinMUN is built on the desire to grant students in California and beyond a platform to express their opinions, hear the thoughts of others, and weigh arguments based on evidence and impact. These are lifelong skills that delegates will carry with them into their greater lives, and will undoubtedly have a positive influence on students’ wider school curricula. From drafting complex directives to giving impassioned speeches on significant world issues, participants will be challenged in persuasive writing, public speaking, and caucusing with their fellow peers, among other proficiencies. Information regarding our conference will be posted on this website, bruinmun.org, and any questions can be directed towards the Secretary-General email, sg.bruinmun@bruinmun.org. Please feel free to send me any questions on any and all topics. Early registration will open on June 1st, and committees and chairs will be released by then.

 

Best Wishes,

Alex Guziak
