The summit was a group of 20 people representing various MUN organizations. The initial concept was to develop best practices for leading MUN programs and conferences in [...]

Even though public speaking is part of what I teach, I still get nervous -- just like any of my students! For keynote speeches I stress the craft of speech writing.

If you’re a new Model UN director, preparing students to attend Model UN conferences is a big challenge, especially if you never did MUN as a student or attended an MUN conference yourself. It’s overwhelming just trying to study the conference’s website and figure out how to register to attend, let alone learning new Model [...]
