General Meetings Tuesdays 5:30-6:30 Ladd 206
Welcome to the Skidmore Model UN blog! Here you’ll hear about what’s going on in our club and ways that you can get involved.
The United Nations Club at Skidmore College organizes and helps students prepare for participation in the annual intercollegiate simulation on the UN. The club helps the involved Skidmore students familiarize themselves with the structure and policies of the assigned country at the simulation. Members are required to do research on a variety of subjects relating to general issues before the United Nations and the stance on these issues of the country the student might be representing in mock simulations, debates and the annual simulation. Skidmore College has been sending delegations to the Model UN conference annually for the past forty years, and has represented numerous countries, such as Mongolia, Israel, France, Poland, Cambodia, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Canada, Ireland, and Kiribati. Recently, Model UN attended a conference in Washington D.C., where we represented Poland in five different UN bodies.
