Model United Nations
Why Should You Join?
The ARC-MUN provides a positive and fun environment for further learning. Not only will you learn more about the world but also will meet a very outgoing group of people. Members of the club do not need any previous experience or classes to join. Many members are social science majors (political science, history, sociology, international studies) but we have had engineering, physics, economics, business, journalism, and biology majors. In the world today, we are all part of the international community, and this club helps connect you to it. Additionally, you will be an active part of the college community which may benefit your college application and individual resume. Not surprisingly, 90% of MUN-ARC members transferred to a UC or CSU.
What is the point of the competition?
The competition simulates the structure of the United Nations and the various issues on its agenda. As Delegates, you represent selected member states of the United Nations; during the 2023 Conference, ARC-MUN represented Latvia and New Zealand. It was an enlightening experience to view the world from a different perspective. Yes, we were from Latvia and New Zealand at the competition and represented their points of view exactly.
At the competition, success is measured if delegates can work collaboratively to get resolutions passed in their committee. It is also measured by receiving an award of Distinction in the Art and Practice of Diplomacy by the MUNFW.
When and where is the competition?
We will attend the 73rd Session of the Model United Nations of the Far West Conference:"Human Security: Our Shared Responsibilities in the 21st Century." ARC-MUN will represent Argentina and Malaysia at the conference:
