Model UN students meet with the Bangladeshi delegation to the United Nations.

This was a great opportunity to learn more about the country and fine-tune their positions when representing Bangladesh in committee.

2014 Stonehill Delegation to NMUN at Rockefeller Center

Who we are: We are a diverse student group in pursuit of a common goal – to make the world a better place, beginning with ourselves.  Our members come from all over the world – Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, North America, and South America.  While each of us is pursuing her/his own path through college, our Model UN (MUN) experiences help us learn about the world, each other and ourselves.  In short, we are becoming better global citizens.  

What we do: We are both a student-led club and a traditional course.  As a student-led club, we organize several on-campus activities that change from year to year.   In the spring semester, we work with a professor in a 1-credit graded course to prepare for and participate in the National Model United Nations Conference in New York City.  It is a great opportunity to spend some time in New York City and meet students from around the world.  In 2018, we represented Ghana as a delegation and placed in the top 15 out of approximately 225 colleges and universities.
