    Arrowhead Model United Nations (U.N.) is one of many collegiate student activities held every year in the United States, Canada and around the world. Model U.N. is an academic simulation of the United Nations that educates participants about global issues, multilateralism and diplomacy.   

    Students play the role of delegates from U.N. member states and serve as observer members. Delegates discuss current issues and negotiate possible solutions by navigating U.N. rules of procedure. Model U.N. helps students understand the domestic and foreign policies of nation states, as well as developing practical diplomatic skills with a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by nations across the globe.

    MSU Moorhead students consistently perform in the top tier at the Arrowhead Model U.N. Conference. In 2011, the MSUM team received numerous group and individual awards, collectively earning nearly 90 percent of the honors given to the delegates and delegations.

    The conference rotates among campuses, giving hundreds of students from many colleges and universities the opportunity to visit other institutions. The 2012 Arrowhead Model United Nations Conference will be held April 12-15, 2012, on the campus of Minnesota State University Mankato.
