Do you care about global environmental issues? Or just like to debate?

The ASU Model United Nations (MUN) class will address environmental issues this semester. Model UN is a great way to learn about different countries and cultures, improve public speaking, research and debate skills and have fun doing it! You may also earn the opportunity to travel to an international conference, where you will meet and compete with people from around the world.. The international-award-winning Model UN Team has competed in numerous countries, including Greece, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, the U.K. and Switzerland.
Model UN can be taken as a 3-credit upper division course (POLS 380) or a 1-credit enrichment credit (HGP 279)The class meets every Wednesday from 4-6:40, and the club meets afterwards. If you are just interested in the club, we would love to have you.

MUN students describe it as more than just a club, “it’s a lifestyle, a family.” Come be part of our family! For more info, please contact Dr. Mari Centeno at LMCENTENO@adams.edu
