The National Model United Nations (NMUN) program is designed to immerse Augusta University students in realistic simulations of the United Nations (UN). Students address global concerns by taking the stance of a specific Member State and participating in negotiations with students from more than 70 countries. 

Beth Augusta University has participated regularly in the NMUN program since 2011 and has received international recognition for efforts regarding global health, regional conflict,  weapons proliferation, security, environmental concerns, peacekeeping, human rights, women and children, and economic development.

Our program operates in the spirit of the UN by sparking debate on the most pressing global challenges in order to produce better global citizens. In the past our students have represented Ghana, Cuba, Iran, Azerbaijan, Jordan, Palestine, and Somalia. The program includes a Study Away component as well.
