The Juniata College Model United Nations (JCMUN) club was established in 1997. Since then the club has attended collegiate conferences, and won awards, at the University of Pennsylvania, Harvard, Georgetown University, Johns Hopkins and McGill in Canada. The club is open to all students, regardless of field of study and of international experience. In addition, Juniata offers a one-credit class for students wishing to learn more about the Model United Nations and participate in the JCMUN high school conference.


What does Model UN do?
