Model United Nations
The Model UN of Alaska is an important international educational experience, which has been organized and offered through voluntary cooperative efforts. Ever since 1980, Alaska high school and university students have had the opportunity to participate in a simulation of the United Nations here in Alaska. Originally offered by Alaska Pacific University, the University of Alaska Anchorage has hosted the Model UN of Alaska since 1993.
The Department of Political Science, within the UAA College of Arts and Sciences, is the university body responsible for coordinating all aspects of the MUN. In fact, UAA students (The Secretariat) both organize and participate in the simulation.
