Our Founding

We began this program in the Fall of 2015 with the aim of serving as an official campus liaison of the United Nations. We are part of  NYU's Model United Nations, one of NYU’s largest and most prestigious organizations, comprised of over 300 members from a wide range of educational and cultural backgrounds. NYU's MUN club has locations in New York, London, Shanghai,  Paris, Abu Dhabi, and Washington DC.

What We Do

We host influential Global Leaders, including Ambassadors, Heads of State, and representatives from various UN Bodies in the hopes of lessening the gap between the youth and political change and understanding.
