Model United Nations seeks to engage students in an authenic simulation of the United Nations while increasing their knowledge of major world issues and problems that affect almost all nations.  Participants have the opportunity of learning the importance of mediation and negotiation in the settlement of conflict between nations.  Students of today will be the leaders of tomorrow, and, through the lens of current events,  are becoming aware of all the serious issues that must be faced in our world.  Becoming a peace maker is an admirable goal in life, and, hopefully, many of the MUN participants will choose that road for themselves and be able to influence others to do the same.
