UC Berkeley Model United Nations

The UC Berkeley Model United Nations (UCBMUN) club simulates debate and educates participants in topics centered around international relations, diplomacy, and public speaking.


“UCBMUN is a community of those passionate about international relations, diplomacy, debate, and travel,” said Vice President Grayson Dimick. “The club is an incredibly diverse experience, with 33 nationalities, 24 languages, and 38 majors (ranging from Political Science to Nuclear Engineering) represented. On a weekly basis, club members have the opportunity to learn about International Relations, practice public speaking, network, and be part of a close-knit, highly social community.”


Members compete on the national circuit, attending eight conferences annually and traveling to universities as close as UCLA and as far as Harvard University.


Ranked 10th nationally, our travel team is highly competitive, winning Outstanding Delegation awards at TrojanMUN and CMUNNY, in addition to bringing home a slew of individual awards,” Dimick recounted.


In the spring, the entire club hosts UCBMUNC in San Francisco, the largest collegiate conference on the west coast, attended by over 600 college students from across the US and the world.


The intercollegiate MUN conference will be held on Feb. 26 - Mar. 1 at the Hilton Hotel, and registration closes on Feb. 15.


Applications to join UCBMUN are out and can be found here, due by Jan. 31. Follow up panel interviews will be conducted between Feb. 6 - 8.
