WELCOME TO HMUN 2017
Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisors,
I am thrilled and honored to invite you to apply to the sixty-fourth session of Harvard Model United Nations, to be held from Thursday, January 26, to Sunday, January 29, 2017 in Boston's famous Back Bay neighborhood. Come January, more than 3,200 delegates and their faculty advisors will gather to address some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Together with our staff of over 200 Harvard University undergraduates, delegates will experience the challenges and thrills of international diplomacy by assuming the roles of UN representatives and other international decision-makers.
At our sixty-third session, delegations in attendance hailed from over 40 countries. From the high-level policy discussions in the Disarmament and International Security Committee to the fast-paced crisis breaks in the historical Manhattan Project meeting, delegates at our most recent session spent four days immersed in an exciting and realistic simulation of the United Nations. I could not be more excited to bring the unparalleled level of substantive excellence that HMUN is renowned for to our sixty-fourth session!
Registration for our sixty-fourth session is now open! Registration information, along with other important dates and deadlines, can be found on the Information tab of our website. Our second Priority Registration Deadline is on August 31, 2016, and we strongly encourage delegations to apply by this date. Applications to HMUN are highly competitive, and delegations applying by August 31 increase their chances of acceptance. You can access our online conference management system by clicking here.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. The entire staff of HMUN 2017 and I are committed to creating a dynamic and educational opportunity for high-school students from around the world, and I sincerely hope that you will consider joining us!
