Pace University New York City Model United Nations students, representing the Republic of Tunisia and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, are currently meeting in the UN General Assembly room in the final session of the 2012 National Model United Nations (NMUN NY) simulation.

Themed “Hope for Lasting Peace,” this conference is the largest and most diverse NMUN meeting in history, with over 5000 students from 44 countries meeting in two major New York hotels and the UN building. Pace students had the chance to sit with their delegations in the conference chamber, watch as their push-button vote registered on the displays behind the dais and speak in from of hundreds of fellow delegates about their country’s position.

Located only two express subway stops from the iconic United Nations complex on the East River, Pace University’s New York City Model UN program has a 60-year history of excellence in regional, national and international conferences. Model UN at Pace is uniquely integrated into the Political Science curriculum within the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences and aims to encourage students to develop wisdom, knowledge and skills for global citizenship.
