About AMUN

American Model United Nations (AMUN) is a non-profit, educational organization founded in 1989 to provide students with the highest quality, most professionally run simulation of the United Nations available. AMUN strives to combine educational quality with highly realistic simulations of the United Nations to give students an unparalleled Model UN learning experience.

This site provides details about our 32nd annual AMUN International Collegiate Conference (click here for general information on AMUN 2021), to be held at the Sheraton Grand Chicago in Chicago, Illinois from Saturday through Tuesday, on November 20–23, 2021, with an expected attendance of over 1,400 students, faculty and young professionals from across the U.S. and around the world. AMUN has provided simulations for high school students and adults, and is happy to consult with Model UN Programs and other MUN Conferences to assist in making everyone’s MUN experience better. AMUN is an associated NGO with the United Nations Department of Public Information.

Beyond our Model UN events, AMUN also provides a variety of resources for teachers at all levels. These include the “Ambassador’s Club video series” which can be utilized for international relations, UN or Model UN classes or groups. Other resources include our “Model UN in a Box Simulation guides” Simulation Kit (formerly the AMUN Simulation Guide), a teacher’s guide for Model UN, and a number of Model UN Resources available on this web site.

In our continuing efforts to better serve the students attending AMUN — and everyone else in the Model UN community — this home page and linked documents provides full information on AMUN conferences, background on Model UNing in general, and any other information you request.
