They learn about global issues and international organizations by representing different nations and working with the delegates of other nations, as well as representatives of NGOs. They also may serve on history-based crisis committees that focus on critical events and the development of policies, decisions, and resolutions affecting the crises outcomes.

Conferences and travel

MUN’s delegates participate on a variety of committees at a wide range of conferences. Competitive travel to a variety of destinations occurs throughout the academic year.  Past destinations include the northeastern United States, China, The United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Singapore, Taiwan, Mexico, and Canada.

In March 2014, Colgate competed in Menton, France at MedMUN. The delegation took home five Best Delegate awards and two honorable mentions. In March 2015, Colgate MUN will be sending delegates to Seoul, South Korea for the MUN World Conference.
