Dear Advisors, Teachers, Students,and School Administrators,
It is our honor to welcome and invite you to the 1stAnnual Eastern Kentucky University Model United Nations (EKUMUN) High School Security Council and Crisis Committee Simulation April 25th and 26th, 2014 on the campus of Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, Kentucky.
For the past year, teachers, students, and professors of Model Laboratory School, Eastern Kentucky University’s College of Education, and Department of Government, have tirelessly dedicated their efforts to create the only true and faithful Model United Nations Simulation to be held in Kentucky since 2003. During thesimulation, students will represent one of the fifteen Security Council nations or specific persons in our Crisis Committees. Through debate and negotiation in various committees, students immerse themselves in the different cultural and political aspects of the countries they represent. This in-depth study of different nations and international issues cannot be duplicated as extensively in a classroom setting. In addition to the educational aspects of the conference, students also gain valuable skills in leadership, communication, organization, and teamwork.
The simulation will consist of several model Security Councils and on joint Crisis Committee. Each Security Council is made up of 15 countries or delegations. Each country/delegation will consist of two students partnered to represent their Security Council nation. The crisis committees will be composed of individual delegates who are assigned a specific person or character to represent. Crisis committees are unique and require a tremendous amount of preparation and very quick and “outside” the box thinking. Often, the most experienced and/or strongest delegates participate in these committees.
Security Council agenda:
1) Pandemic Crises as Security Issues;
2) Assessment of, role discussion, and possible expansion of the DROC Intervention Brigade trial for full international crisis operations;
3) Human Security and the post-Millennium Development Goals;
4) The territorial dispute over Cyprus
Joint Crises Committees:
Order of the Phoenix, the Prequel, 1979-1981:
Order of the Phoenix Crisis Committee
Death Eaters Crisis Committee
Our Secretariat is working very hard to create a fantastic experience for delegates and advisors. All committees will be chaired by students from EKU, Centre College, and Western Kentucky University. All chairs will have at least three years of high school MUN experience. Delegates and advisors will be able to contact the entire Secretariat and most importantly the committee chairs, at any time for assistance. The chairs are very knowledgeable of the issues to be discussed in their respective committees and can be looked upon as pseudo-experts upon those topics. We will have special guest delegates representing parties who will be discussed in the councils made of professors from EKU and Berea College.
EKUMUN has been founded with the intention of creating a traditional Model United Nations Simulation in Kentucky and facilitating global awareness with our high school students in the region. Outstanding delegates and delegations will be selected by their fellow delegates and will receive plaques designating the accomplishment. Awards will be presented for 4th place, 3rd place as well. Each delegate will be asked to vote for the Distinguished and Outstanding delegate from their council. Delegates also be asked to identify the most Distinguished and Outstanding Delegations of the entire simulation. The Secretariat will present their own award to the overall top delegate and delegation in their eyes as well as a Faculty of the Year Award for Advisors.
We look forward to facilitating this educational experience for your students and hearing from you soon!
