Organization Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote understanding of foreign governments, peoples, and international political institutions such as, but not limited to, the United Nations, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and the League of Arab States, through participation in intercollegiate and high school simulations. We also seek to facilitate cross-cultural relationships and exchanges of ideas among students of diverse backgrounds. Additionally, we serve as a medium through which students have the opportunity to increase their awareness of the global issues facing the international community and foster an environment in which students practice diplomacy. And, we seek to support and represent with dignity the University's continuing commitment to Experiential Education and global inquiry.
