Harvard National Model United Nations

Purpose Statement

Founded in 1955 only a decade after the United Nations, Harvard National Model United Nations (HNMUN), is the largest, oldest, and most prestigious conference of its kind. Staffed entirely by Harvard College undergraduates, HNMUN brings over 3,000 students and faculty together from colleges and universities around the world to simulate the activities of the United Nations. HNMUN offers a unique opportunity to experience the challenges of international negotiation and diplomacy. This year, the conference will take this tradition to a new level with numerous innovations designed to enhance the delegate experience. This session will be held at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel from Thursday, February 16, through Sunday, February 19, 2017. Throughout the conference, delegates will gain insight into the workings of the United Nations by actively participating in the resolution of important global issues. Participants will not only work with hundreds of other motivated college students with the common goals of furthering international awareness and building consensus, but will also work within a lively social setting.
