Model United Nations

Learn how to problem solve, compromise and understand the importance of working together

Every year, Simpson College students participate in the Midwest Model United Nations (MMUN). Simpson is the only college in Iowa to regularly compete in this event.

Model UN is an exciting role-playing simulation where students work together on important international issues.

At the conference, Simpson students play the role of a nation’s diplomatic delegation. Student delegates split into different committees to discuss two or three different real-world topics in each committee. They have to consider problems and work together to come up with potential solutions.

Simpson competes against hundreds of students, some from schools far larger than Simpson, on their knowledge of global politics and diplomacy, regularly winning Outstanding Delegation awards, including five awards at MMUN 2018.
