What we do
Model UN is a solution-oriented style of debate where participants take the perspective of stakeholders in important international issues. Participants work together to come up with solutions while representing the interests of their assigned stakeholder, often a country.
Ryerson students have the opportunity to attend weekly training sessions to strengthen their Model UN skills, participate in a handful of in-house mini conferences, and enjoy a number of social events.
We also send delegations to several conferences hosted at other universities across Canada. Our delegation has been very successful at these conferences, winning a total of 13 awards over the 2016-2017 academic year.
Membership is open to all Ryerson students, no experience required!
