Model United Nations

The Fitchburg State University Model UN (MUN) Club brings students from all classes together under the faculty advice of Political Science Professors, Eric Budd and Joshua Spero, to focus on role-playing UN nation leaderships, tackling challenging international scenarios, and gaining valuable problem solving skills. To create leaders for the 21st Century, Fitchburg State's MUN Team expands students' international political experiences, provides new international opportunities during their university careers, and broadens their career possibilities and choices. As members of the team, students develop critical thinking to dissect arguments and strengthen international negotiating techniques invaluable to research and leadership. They increase and diversify their educational experiences through greater service learning to bridge the public and private sectors more effectively. Over the past several years since the Fitchburg State MUN Team was founded, the team has competed in the Harvard, Yale, Northeastern, and McGill University conferences, often involving dozens of universities among hundreds of students from the United States and such countries as Brazil, Canada, China, France, Great Britain, Italy, Japan and Venezuela.
