Model United Nations

Founded in 2009, our Model United Nations Club (IMZMUN) combines the educational value of academia and the recreational aspect of an enriching extracurricular activity.

Model United Nations, also known as Model UN or MUN, is an extra-curricular activity in which students typically roleplay delegates to the United Nations and simulate UN committees. The history of our IMZMUN dates back to the 1940’s when we had the Montana International Relations Club. Articles found in our alumni magazine from the 40’s and 50’s show that this club intended to improve the tolerance and understanding between students from different cultural backgrounds in the spirit of the newly founded United Nations. Today, our participating students get insights into international politics and the simulations also involve substantial researching, public speaking, debating, and writing skills, as well as critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities.

Every year, we host our own conference on campus as well as attend international MUN conferences hosted by other schools and organisations in cities such as Berlin, Paris and even the United Nations in Geneva. If you are considering a potential career in politics, love to debate or are just looking for a different kind of extracurricular activity, then this club is for you.
