Dear Delegates and Advisors,
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the forty-first session of Yale Model United Nations. YMUN XLI will take place on Yale’s campus from January 22 – 25, 2015. Under the direction of our dedicated and passionate secretariat and staff, YMUN will be a wonderful experience for delegates and advisors alike, and we can’t wait to welcome you on campus in January.
I sincerely hope that this year’s conference will provide delegates with an exciting and rewarding educational opportunity that will help them discover passions and think critically about international relations. Centered on the theme, “Learn Today, Lead Tomorrow,” this year’s YMUN hopes to encourage our delegates to develop skills of debate and diplomacy and to engage with each other. We want our delegates to walk away with not only a deeper knowledge of international relations, but also an awareness of how they will grow from and apply their YMUN experience in future endeavors.
The vast array of committee topics will ensure the dynamic and interactive debate that defines YMUN. We will bring the education experience to new heights with presentations by Yale professors and other guest speakers and experts. Outside of the committee room, we offer a broader view of what Yale is. At Yale Day, delegates have the chance to interact with Yale student groups and professors through different activities, including a challenging international relations program and a fantastic showcase featuring many of Yale’s talented performers.
I would like to heartily extend you an invitation to join us. Registration opens May 12th, 2014, and you will find more information on this page. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, comments, or concerns. YMUN is a unique educational opportunity, and I hope you choose to join us come January!
