Conferences

The World Affairs Program travels to a number of Model UN and crisis simulation conferences each year. Team selections are made on a conference-by-conference basis: that is, there is not a "travel team" that is established at the beginning of the year or semester.

Tryouts are held prior to each conference and potential team members are required to compete against each other for travel spots for each conference. If you are interested in traveling to a conference, you must participate in the corresponding tryout in order to be eligible for selection to the team for that conference.

The specific conference we compete at and their dates vary each year, but a list of conferences we typically attend is below with general dates for these conferences.  See our Facebook group for more specific information about the conferences we are competing at this year, tryouts dates, and conference schedules. You can also contact the student Director or another student Officer for more information about traveling to a conference.
