Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisors,

I am thrilled to invite you to apply to the sixty-second session of Harvard Model United Nations, to be held from Thursday, January 29, to Sunday, February 1, 2015 at the Sheraton Boston Hotel. Under the guidance of a staff of more than 200 Harvard University undergraduates, delegates will experience the challenges of negotiation by assuming the roles of UN representatives and members of other decision-making bodies. More than 3,000 delegates and 300 faculty advisors from around the United States and world will convene to confront and debate issues of international import.

At our sixty-first session, we were thrilled to welcome to Boston delegates from over 35 countries. In committees ranging in size from almost 400 delegates to 15, delegates discussed issues facing the international community from perspectives that were entirely different from their own. We are so grateful to all those who participated in such an exceptional weekend.

Preparations for our upcoming session have already begun. As has become tradition in recent years, registration will open on May 1. This, along with all other dates and deadlines, is described more fully on this page.

Whether you have attended HMUN for years or are considering participating for the first time, I strongly encourage you to submit your application by the first Priority Registration Deadline on May 28. Until then, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, comments, or concerns. HMUN is an exciting educational opportunity, and I sincerely hope that you will choose to take part in it.
