    Model United Nations

In Model United Nations Harding students learn how to change the world. By simulating the UN, students explore a country’s unique history, culture and politics in order to attend conferences where they act as that nation’s diplomatic corps. Students build and showcase skills in collaborative research, written and oral communication, critical thinking and teamwork, which are important skills in educational pursuits and the workplace. Harding University has an exemplary record and routinely wins individual and team awards at conferences. Model UN alumni can use this experience to take jobs in diplomacy, governmental service and social justice.
