Letter from the Secretary-General

Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisors,

I am excited and honored to invite you to the thirty-first annual conference of the Model United Nations of the University of Chicago, to be held Thursday through Sunday, February 7–10, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency in the heart of downtown Chicago. With the new hotel, we hope to encourage more socioeconomic and regional diversity in a newer, cheaper, and larger space. At MUNUC 31, nearly 3,000 high-school students will assume the roles of ambassadors and diplomats for a weekend of stimulating discussion, growth, and fun alongside our 250 University of Chicago undergraduate members.

Nationally recognized for substantive excellence, MUNUC enables students to interact first-hand with the challenges of international diplomacy, to debate solutions to the big issues facing their generation, and engage with students and topics reflecting the world around them. Delegates will have the opportunity to develop vital personal and professional skills, encouraged and supported by extensively-trained and passionate UChicago students on every dais. Our goal for this conference, and every conference before and to come, is to ensure students leave MUNUC having learned an immense amount about a particular topic, their own skills and abilities, and will further use these skills and knowledge to pursue their passions and goals. Our thirty-first session will continue to deliver an experience characterized by educational and meaningful opportunity, and I sincerely hope that you will be able to join us!

Registration for MUNUC 31 will open on May 21, and confirmation of acceptance and country assignments will be announced early October. Additional details concerning logistics, including key dates and the fee schedule, are available on this website under the Conference tab.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, concerns, or feedback you may have. For thirty years, MUNUC has been an exceptional and momentous experience for students from around the world, and whether this would be your school’s inaugural trip or its thirty-first, we look forward to welcoming you next February!

“I love Chicago and enjoy giving students the experience of visiting the city, but I would never take them 1,000 miles unless the quality of the conference justified it. MUNUC continues to justify the expense, the travel-related stress, and the extra work.”

Christopher Fyfe


“The background guides were very helpful — as a more experienced member, they were very convenient when helping the younger members of our club research and form opinions on the topics.”
