Esteemed Delegates and Advisors,

It is my honor to officially announce the fourth session of Notre Dame Model United Nations.  This year’s conference will be held on campus from January 31 through February 2. 

For the past three years NDMUN has provided students with the opportunity to: develop their skills in speaking and collaboration, tackle complex global issues, and work together to achieve solutions and reach compromises.  With three levels of committee, ranging from beginner to advanced, NDMUN has striven to provide an inclusive experience to all delegates without sacrificing the rigor and prestige that makes it an elite Model UN conference.  Moreover, by holding the conference on campus, we allow high school delegates the chance to visit and reside on one of the most prestigious and beautiful campuses on the Midwest. 

This year I am excited to announce that NDMUN will be growing and improving, while also maintaining the identity that has made it a destination conference in the past.  The year we will be offering larger GA committees, involving more crisis elements in the intermediate and advanced committees, and offering new lodging options within 5-minute walking distance of all committees.  As usual, we will be offering GA, Specialized, and Crisis committees, each of which will be developed to perfection by our newly expanded secretariat and committee staff.  A diverse range of committee topics will allow delegates to debate everything from how science and technology factor into development projects in today’s world in UN COMMISSION ON SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY FOR DEVELOPMENT, to the power dynamics of post WW1 Europe in TREATY OF VERSAILLES, to liberty and revolutionary movements under the oppressive British Monarchy in EASTER RISING 1916, among a myriad of other issues.

Registration for this year’s conference is now open.  To be added to our email list and receive updates on registration, please email  This year will be offering Early Bird Registration, open until  August 15, Standard Registration, open until November 15, and Late Registration, open until the end of December.  Additionally, we are including a promotion for returning schools who refer a new school to the conference.  For more details on these promotions and rates, please visit our Fees and Deadlines page.

We are thrilled to welcome all of our incredible delegates and advisors to campus this winter.  Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, concerns, or feedback you may have at  We look forward to seeing you on campus.
