The Junior Model United Nations (JMUN) program at Augusta University introduces middle school students to global challenges and allows them to learn about the culture and politics of another State. 

Much like the college program, JMUN participants assume the perspective of a diplomat from a UN Member State and represent their position  in a day-long simulation at Augusta University. Students are able to choose their State and conduct research prior to the conference in order to debate, negotiate, and work towards a realistic solution. For more information about the conference please contact the program director.
