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,

My name is Shrey Kakkar, and I welcome you to BRUINMUN 17. I am a sophomore at UCLA, and will serve as your chair for the International Labor Organization. The ILO will be an interesting and challenging committee, and I expect everyone to have an excellent and learning weekend.

I am a native of India, and currently study Computer Science at UCLA. I have been a part of Model UN at UCLA since my first quarter here, and truly enjoy the atmosphere at the club. My other hobbies include playing table tennis and cricket, and solving riddles and puzzles like Sudoku etc.

The topics for this year involve some very concerning and disturbing issues, like child labor and providing access to work to migrants and refugees. These issues have been pertaining to almost all the member states since many decades, and it is not extremely urgent to find solutions to them.

I am extremely excited to see you all in BruinMUN this fall. Please contact me, if you have any questions about the committee.

Shrey Kakkar | Chair
