Who we are
The Model United Nations Society is ODU's window on the United Nations and international activism. The Society's mission is promoting global, multicultural education and leadership experience through experiential learning, stressing student participation in simulation conferences and courses. We represent the university at model UN, European Union, Nato and crisis simulation conferences around the country, and by organizing major simulations of our own, including ODUMUNC, held every February. Membership is open to students from all colleges and disciplines at the university.
