Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisors,

The sixty-fifth session of Harvard Model United Nations will be held from Thursday, January 25, to Sunday, January 28, 2018 in Boston's famous Back Bay neighborhood. Come January, more than 3,300 high school 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-fourth 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 Constituent Assembly of Myanmar, 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-fifth session!

Application for our sixty-fifth session closed on October 4, 2017 and the conference is now full. Important conference dates and deadlines, along with the tentative conference schedule, can be found on the Information tab of our website.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. The entire staff of HMUN 2018 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!

In service and leadership,

Andrew R. Chang
