YUNMUN XXIX: Letter from the Director 

Dear Delegate,

As you embark on the journey which will culminate in the twenty-seventh Yeshiva University Model United Nations, YUNMUN XXIX, we will be doing everything possible to ensure that your experience is nothing short of remarkable. Take advantage of this unique and exciting adventure to enjoy the camaraderie of your peers, the challenge of the competition, the exhilaration that comes from reaching far beyond anything you have attempted before and achieving your goals.

YUNMUN began with just over 150 participants in its first year, and has grown exponentially to include over 500 participants whose sophistication and preparation have far exceeded anything we could have imagined in that first year. In order to allow us to expand to include the over forty high schools from all over the world that participate in YUNMUN, we have moved from our original location on the New York Campus to a more spacious venue. In spite of this growth, we are committed to maintaining the special personal touch that all YU events have in common. 

YUNMUN is more than an event; it is a one of a kind experience providing both our current students and you the opportunity to meet new people, expand the breadth and depth of your knowledge and understanding of the world, and of course, have a great time! Almost every one of our current YU students serving as a YUNMUN advisor has been a participant while in high school. It is this type of dedication and enthusiasm that are the core of Model UN. Our anticipation and excitement for this year's event can only be exceeded by yours. We are confident that YUNMUN XXIX will be the most outstanding ever, and look forward to sharing the experience with you at our 29th Yeshiva University Model United Nations!

 I look forward to greeting you personally.

 B'hatzlacha rabba,
