Carnegie Mellon University’s Model United Nations organization (previously Carnegie Mellon University International Relations Organization) was formed in 2009, and currently has over 30 participating members. Members have the opportunity to travel across the country to participate in Model United Nations competitions at universities including those hosted by Georgetown University, Cornell University, New York University and University of Chicago.
In additional to facilitating conference-related travel and competition, CMUMUN hosts a high school conference in the spring titled Crisis at Carnegie Mellon, or C@CM. This conference provides high school students the opportunity to gain exposure to collegiate-level crisis simulations. The conference is hosted entirely by our members, and includes two days of exhilarating debate.
