Central Piedmont Model United Nations Club

Model United Nations (MUN) is a Central Piedmont club that provides students with simulation experiences of United Nations sessions.

The MUN club attends conferences with students from other schools where they represent a country and act like the UN, discussing real-life international events and creating resolutions.

Students will learn about current world events and different cultures, as well as develop problem-solving, negotiation and technical writing skills. Moreover, students have the opportunity to meet people from many different places and backgrounds participating in on-campus events, fundraisings and off-campus conferences.

What do we do?

  • Simulate the UN Committee meetings
  • Meet new students at CPCC and from around the world
  • Foster negotiations, diplomacy and international relations skills
  • Learn about current international issues

CPCC Model UN Club Attends Conference in Boston

CPCC’s Model United Nations club attended the Harvard National Model United Nations Conference from February 16-19, 2012. Club advisors Teresa Hall and Phil Garland took 12 students to Boston for the conference, where they represented Madagascar Model UNand Syria in a simulation of the UN Assembly.
The club members found the experience both exciting and educational. Having attended the local conference at UNCC last fall, many of the students had experienced Model UN on a small scale, but the National level conferences are a different matter altogether.  The Harvard conference is held each year in mid-February.  It brings together more than 3,000 students from around the world, from small colleges to large universities such as Harvard and Yale, to schools from Holland, Indonesia, and the People’s Republic of China among many others.  CPCC was the only community college world-wide to participate in the conference.
For four days the CPCC delegation debated and addressed problems of modern world diplomacy, including the logistics of assisting refugees, the impact of the internet on intellectual property rights, Hezbollah and Hamas, international safety standards for nuclear energy, and child health in the developing world.  Members of the CPCC club said that their experiences expanded their cultural awareness and interpersonal skills and gave them insights into the organization and handling of large events.
Future plans for the club involve attending the local training conference at UNCC and the Southern Regional Conference in Atlanta in the fall and founding a new Charlotte Regional Conference with three area universities to begin in spring 2013.
