Welcome to the CSUSB Model United Nations (MUN) 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 and international relations, diplomatic thought and behavior, and the complexities of the United Nations systems and related organizations. 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. The career paths some of our alumni have succeeded in spans legislative and legal, diplomatic and foreign services, law enforcement and national security, academic and research, and much more. 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 (NMUN) held in New York City every Spring and at a variety of international sites every Fall (including South Korea, Czech Republic, Canada, and Germany). The CSUSB MUN team has participated in National 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.
