The Model UN Conference, presented in partnership with Plymouth State University Model United Nations Club, is a two-day conference and the only state-wide Model UN conference in New Hampshire. It draws more than 150 students, accompanied by their faculty members, from across the state. It is supported, in part, by the Sidore Foundation.
Model UN is an authentic simulation of the United Nations General Assembly and other multilateral bodies. Conferences around the country provide a forum for high school students to address global concerns in a "real world" context. Model UN also promotes interest in international relations, increases capacity for problem solving and teachers aspects of conflict resolution, and research and communication skills.
