To create leaders for the 21st Century, Fitchburg State's MUN Team:

  • Expands students' international political experiences
  • Provides new international opportunities during students' university careers
  • Broadens students' career possibilities and choices

Members 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, the Fitchburg State MUN team has competed at such universities as Harvard, Yale, Northeastern, the University of Chicago, the University of Pennsylvania, Emory, and McGill, and has attended conferences nationwide with students from all over the globe.
