Multiple Workshop Camp Skill Building Summer Program


The Columbia Model United Nations Conference and Exposition (CMUNCE) is a four-day international relations simulation for secondary school students. Delegates from around the world interact with one another by debating to solve complex world challenges. By taking on the roles of United Nations representatives and members of other international bodies, participants are able to learn about the inner workings of global politics and problem solving.

Fast-paced crisis committees in the program encourage students to react quickly and solve real world problems regarding international affairs. The CMUNCE experience also extends beyond its crisis committees to also provide students with an opportunity to engage with real world diplomats through its diplomatic visit program, and invited committee speakers.

The next CMUNCE will take place from January 14-17, 2021
