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.

Hello, brave delegates. My name is Evan Davis-Palley, and I’m a now a fourth year at UCLA. I’m studying Linguistics and Computer Science (that’s one major here) with a double major in Spanish. You might be thinking “What does that have to do with Model UN?” The answer, unfortunately, is nothing. However, that is also the reason I decided to join MUN as a freshman at UCLA - I’ve always been interested in international relations and problem solving, but since my major did not encompass anything related to that, I decided I would have to find another way to satisfy that curiosity - luckily, Model UN was around, and for the past three years I have made a ton of great friends and it has become a rather large part of my life on campus. I hope that I can help you all further your interest in international relations, just like my superiors did when I was younger.

Thanks and good luck,

Evan Davis-Palley | Chair
