Welcome to Earlham College Model United Nations!

On behalf of the Earlham Model United Nations Club, it is my great pleasure to personally welcome each of you to the Earlham College Model United Nations Conference 2016! As we have witnessed thus far, this is a year of challenges, from the rise of ISIS to unmet goals of the Millennium Development Goals, natural disasters to police brutality. However, as the Chinese saying goes, “A crisis is an opportunity riding the dangerous wind,” this is also a year of opportunities. We, as the millennials have the opportunity to influence what is right and speak truth to power against injustice in any part of the world. This is a year of empathy, where we provide relief to our neighbors, show solidarity with movements around the world, and stand up for injustice everywhere.

With a mentality to positively impact communities with our work, we start this academic year with lots of ideas. We celebrated the 20th anniversary of our conference last year and are looking forward to start a new decade of excellence! Every year, hundreds of students work together to put together one of the best high school conferences in the mid-west. This year, we will be touching on some key issues from the year – from humanitarian relief and foreign aid, to the rise of terror groups and cyber terrorism. More importantly, we will be planning a few surprises for you – watch out for that unexpected crisis!

I hope you will join us at the 2016 Earlham College Model United Nations Conference in Richmond, Indiana. We invite you to save January 29 – January 30 as the date for the ECMUN 2016. Participation in ECMUN is an exceptional opportunity for high school students to become more globally aware, exercise their research, public speaking and interpersonal skills. Moreover, participation in our conference will serve as a perfect example of leadership experience for a lot of students when they are looking into applying for colleges. Most importantly, ECMUN is a way to have fun in a sophisticated way and make friends from all over Indiana!
We look forward to seeing you in January. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

“Over the years our high school Model UN Club has competed in many different conferences across the country. The Earlham conference is by far the best. It is well-organized, the college student leaders take time to teach and model the process, the outside speakers are excellent and it is fun. This is the conference my students look forward to all year.” ~Mary Grabianowski, Teacher at Zionsville High School
“Attending ECMUN for three years as a high school student was such a rewarding learning experience. In addition, the conference chairs were always helpful whenever I had any questions and the constantly welcoming community at the conference was a contributing factor to why I chose to attend Earlham. ECMUN also gave me a taste of the social sciences and interdisciplinary programs at Earlham which caught my attention and made me want to learn more about what else Earlham had to offer.” ~Abigail Katherine Hammond ’18, Co-Chief Operating Officer
