Welcome to the CSUSB Model United Nations Program

The CSUSB Model United Nations (MUN) Program is an academic program housed in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies within the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at California State University, San Bernardino.  The MUN Program provides students with insight into global affairs, diplomacy, and the United Nations system.  The program prepares students for a variety of career paths by helping students develop their soft skills set -- including (but not limited to) public speaking, writing, interpersonal communication skills, teamwork, conflict resolution skills, research skills, and leadership skills.  Due to the successes of the program and its participants, the CSUSB MUN Program is used as a model for other MUN programs around the globe.

The CSUSB MUN Program annually participates in the National Model UN Conferences held in New York City every Spring and at a variety of international sites every Fall (including South Korea, Czech Republic, Canada, and Germany).  It has participated in Model UN conferences globally for the past three decades.  The Fall MUN teams are part of a joint program between the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies and the Study Abroad Office housed in the College of Extended and Global Education.

2021 CSUSB Coyote Model UN-DC Team

Please Note:  Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and related travel restrictions, the NMUN-Czech Republic conference has been canceled in Fall 2021.

Therefore, the CSUSB MUN Program will be attending the NMUN-DC Conference, November 4 to November 7.  For those students who had planned on applying for the CSUSB MUN-Fall team (that was scheduled to travel to the Czech Republic for the 2021 NMUN-Czech Republic Conference), we strongly encourage you to apply for the 2021 CSUSB MUN-DC team (who will participate in the 2021 National Model UN Conference-Washington DC).  Details of the application process will be posted by May 17, 2021.

For applicants to be eligible to serve on the Fall 2021 CSUSB MUN Team (MUN-DC), applicants must be enrolled in GEOG 5150 (Global Governance and the UN System) prior to applying or in the same term as the team they are applying to be a part of.  Therefore, for Fall 2021 applicants, you must have taken GEOG 5150 previously or be enrolled in GEOG 5150 during Fall 2021.
