Model UN Offers Opportunities to Learn, Volunteer

Students participating in UNC Charlotte’s Model United Nations this fall are finding increased opportunities to compete nationally and internationally, as well as options for volunteering in the local community.

Model UN simulates the United Nations in an academic environment. Students who join the Model UN program engage in activities such as mock debates to prepare for competitions where they represent countries and attend embassy and committee briefings. Model UN also gives students the opportunity to practice their research skills and argumentation skills.

"Becoming global citizens who know and care about their world enriches their lives in countless ways," said Cindy Combs, faculty advisor and a professor in the Political Science and Public Administration Department. "They want others to understand the value of their Model UN experience."
