NHSMUN is known for its diverse, prestigious attendees, world-class staff, proven substantive excellence, and accurate, engaging committee simulations. NHSMUN exposes students to high-profile, relevant United Nations figures, including a visit to the ambassadors or representatives of the embassy of the countries they are representing. In 2016, Samantha Power, US Ambassador to the UN, served as the keynote speaker. Academically rigorous material, thought-provoking debate, and a staff of carefully-selected MUN experts -- whether you are a beginner or veteran, if you are looking for an engaging, immersive experience in the world of international affairs, problem solving, and diplomacy, this is the conference for you.
