Welcome to the CSUSB Model United Nations (MUN) Program
The CSUSB Model United Nations (CSUSB - 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 CSUSB - MUN Program is an academic program that fulfills a GE requirement. Each year the team is assigned a new Member State (a country) to represent in the conference. The assigned Member State has specific role in the United Nations system with specific positions. Students learn about the positions of a given Member State, they learn about the United Nations, the role of different Member States within the UN, and how to think, behave, and speak like a diplomat.
The training for the MUN team includes research, writing, interpersonal communication, teamwork, conflict resolution, and public speaking. There is substantial work and commitment associated with the program. The team meets on Fridays from 2 PM to 6 PM.
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 private sector.
The CSUSB MUN Program annually participates in the National Model UN (NMUN) conferences held in New York City every Spring and at a variety of international sites every Fall (including South Korea, Czech Republic, Canada, Japan, and Germany). The CSUSB MUN team has participated in NMUN conferences globally for more than two decades.
