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.

Dear delegates,

Welcome to G20 at BruinMUN 2017! I am incredibly excited to be your chair for this conference--it will be my 6th and last (and hopefully best) BruinMUN!

First, a little about myself. My name is Xinrui Xue (pronounced sin-ree), and I am an Economics and International Development Studies double major in my fourth year at UCLA. I will also be the Director of Marketing for MUN at UCLA this year. Model United Nations has been a part of my life since freshman year of high school, when I started competing on the Southern California circuit. Since then, I have attended nearly 40 conferences, taught MUN throughout the country, and worked for Best Delegate. Model UN has taught me everything from public speaking to diplomacy, and its impact is something that has shaped my passions and character. Aside from MUN, I love visiting art museums, curating Spotify playlists, and perfecting my aesthetic.

The Group of 20, or G20, is a committee that I have always wanted to chair. This gathering of the twenty major economies of the world creates the perfect set-up for debate on the most pressing topics today. Our two agenda topics, the Fourth Industrial Revolution and re-evaluating the role of global financial institutions, are compelling and relevant issues that I look forward to hearing debate on. I hope each delegate considers the powerful influence of the G20 and how it can create solutions that help the global community, especially developing nations. In all, I can’t wait to meet all of you and have an thrilling weekend of diplomacy and solutions!

Best regards,

Xinrui Xue | Chair
