MACMUN 2017 Archive

 

MACMUN's second conference took place over the course of 3 days, from February 10th to 12th, at David Braley Health Sciences Centre. It featured 4 committees,165 delegates, and a social held at the school's Faculty Club. This year marked the first year in which the conference was entirely run by volunteer students that were members of the Model United Nations Club, though the Student Union and Office of the President remained supportive partners. The theme of this conference was celebrating diversity, a theme that was reflected in the committees' topics, online campaigns, and more.
