About Our Club

Marist Model United Nations (MMUN) is an organization open to anyone who wishes to learn about the United Nations and international relations. The mission of our club is to develop within students the skills inherent in diplomacy through structured debate in the style of the United Nations.
Marist Model United Nations attends the National Model United Nations conference every year, held in New York City. Members of the club, through a competitive application process, will be selected to represent Marist College at this prestigious event, which draws over 2,000 delegates from around the world.

  • Why I love Model UN: My favorite part of participating in Model United Nations is how the experience helps shape communicative and collaborative skills through diplomacy. Every time I go, I feel myself getting more confident in my own abilities. Also, it's so much fun to meet other delegates from around the world! Some of my favorite moments from past conferences were spent with other delegates either in session or out. It's a lot of hard work, but the memories you walk away with will last you a lifetime.

Secretary: Ethan Solury ‘26

  • Hometown: Southington, Connecticut
  • Major: Political Science and Global Studies
  • Why I love Model UN: My favorite part about Model United Nations is learning about other countries view points on current situations. Remembering how countries hold certain beliefs that may not always align with some of the more powerful members. Although learning about these beliefs and what countries have to account for, finding the middle ground also interests me. Understanding that compromises have to be made and that countries have to respect one another's viewpoints in order to find a resolution.
