Welcome to &MUN VIII, William & Mary’s collegiate-level model United nations conference!

&MUN VIII will be held on April 2-5, 2020 in Williamsburg, Virginia.

Letter From the Secretary-General


Dear Delegates, Advisors, and Members of the Model United Nations Community,

It is my distinct pleasure to welcome all of you to the eighth iteration of the College of William & Mary’s collegiate Model United Nations Conference, &MUN.  Over the past seven years, &MUN and its dedicated staffers have worked tirelessly to develop and execute exciting and dynamic crisis simulations every April, and this year is no exception:  &MUN VIII is delighted to welcome delegates back to Williamsburg on April 2-5, 2020.  

&MUN is proud of its tradition of debate and diplomacy and is committed to ensuring that its delegates leave every year with both a greater understanding of international and historical affairs and a deeper appreciation for the value of teamwork, cooperation, and negotiation.  It is also a primary goal of &MUN that delegates leave not only leave having learned something in committee but having made lifelong friends outside of it. &MUN is pleased to welcome guest speakers from the foreign affairs and international policy communities who provide invaluable insights into the world we are simulating.  The International Relations Club at William & Mary strives for &MUN to inspire the next generation of diplomats, academics, and policy-makers. 

This year, &MUN has a team of extraordinary committee directors who are hard at work crafting engaging committees and simulations for our conference next year.  From witnessing the epic battle between the Trojans and the Achaeans to preventing future worldwide economic collapse, from the favelas of Brazil to the Kuomintang Islamic Insurgence, delegates at &MUN VIII are guaranteed to find a committee that suits both their interests and their skills.  

&MUN is also partnering with the International Relations Club’s non-profit of the year to ensure that &MUN not only has a positive impact on those who attend the conference but on the global community as well.  

Please explore our website and let the Secretariat know if you have any questions.  Registration for &MUN VIII is now open.
