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.

What Do We Do?


Model United Nations at UCLA engages students in a dynamic simulation of the United Nations by hosting high school and college level conferences, as well as by traveling to other college level conferences hosted by top notch universities across the continent. Model UN at UCLA is one of the ten comprehensive American collegiate MUN programs that has the ability to host a high school conference, a college conference, and field a competitive travel team.

How Does It Work?

Students take on the role of a delegate or character from an assigned nation and discuss international relations topics with the ultimate goal of collaborating to write a resolution solving the issue at hand. Model United Nations teaches highly useful and marketable skills such as public speaking, and it is a fantastic avenue for networking and making lifelong friends with students at UCLA and all across the college MUN circuit.

How Can You Get Involved?

Come to a meeting! Anyone can sign up to staff our conferences and try out to compete at travel conferences with zero prior experience and no financial burden; we provide training and subsidize our travel teams.

Model United Nations at UCLA meets on Tuesday nights at 6pm on campus in Humanities 169. Join our mailing list below for further details.
