Concordia’s Model United Nations Club (CMUNC) is a student group at Concordia University of Alberta which gives politically-minded students an opportunity to experience international relations in a series of realistic simulations. Every year our club attends an annual conference in Alberta. Our students come back from these conferences enriched with a deeper understanding of international issues.
CMUNC also provides a platform for students to develop skills in debate, public speaking, and conflict resolution. These students become leaders in their classrooms and community, setting them on a path to become influential leaders. They also bring attention and prestige to Concordia and the Edmonton area on an international platform. CMUNC is a valuable part of the Concordia community. Although small, our club represents a diverse group of students from the business, education, arts and science faculties, and it is rapidly growing.
In the 2017-2018 academic year CMUNC will be sending six student to attend the National Model UN (NMUN) Conference in Banff National Park, Alberta. They will be representing Bolivia and the Republic of Senegal. The Concordia Model United Nations Club will have students defending issues on the committees of the General Assembly (GA), the United Nations Environmental Assembly (UNEA), and the Security Council (SC).
Additionally, Concordia is inviting anyone interested in joining the club to please join us for our upcoming local conference. The Alberta-Inter-Collegiate Model UN (AIMUN) Conference will be hosted in Calgary in March 2018 (Topic TBA). The club will be holding a new members meeting in January.
