MUN Advisors Institute

Empower Your Model UN Students

Model United Nations empowers today’s students to become tomorrow’s leaders. The MUN Advisors Institute provides professional development to prepare educators to take on the important role in supporting their students in their MUN journey.

Which Program is Right for You?

The Advisors Institute offers five program levels. Advisors may take the levels that match their previous experience and their MUN program’s objectives. Advisors who are new to MUN or have never formally learned MUN are recommended to take Level 1 first.

Programs are offered throughout the summer. Each program runs on Tuesday-Thursday for three hours each day (nine hours total), and is offered at different time zones.
