YUNMUN XXXI: Letter from the Acting Director 

Dear Delegate,

Welcome to the thirty first Yeshiva University Model United Nations, YUNMUN XXXI!

When I was in high school and then in college at YU, I always looked forward to February. February was model UN month and Model UN was one the highlights of my high school and college career!  The excitement, enthusiasm and positive energy generated by YUNMUN must be experienced firsthand to be believed. I know we will continue to do everything possible to ensure that your experience, too, is nothing short of remarkable. 

Take advantage of this unique and exciting adventure to enjoy the camaraderie of your peers (even virtually), the challenge of the competition, the exhilaration that comes from reaching far beyond anything you have attempted before and achieving your goals. Over the years the conference has grown in size and scope, and 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! YUNMUN was the last time we were able to all gather since the pandemic began, and we know the energy and experience of YUNMUN is too special to skip even in these turbulent times, which is why we have decided to launch the first ever VIRTUAL YUNMUN!  

Our anticipation and excitement for this year's event can only be exceeded by yours. We are confident that YUNMUN XXXI will be the most outstanding ever, and we look forward to sharing the virtual experience with you at our 31st Yeshiva University Model United Nations! 

Lets make YUNMUN thirty one, the most special YUNMUN yet!
 I look forward to greeting you virtually!
 B'hatzlacha rabba,
