UNA-Tampa Bay is excited to announce our annual Model United Nations conference will be hosted March 24, 2017 at the University of South Florida Marshall Student Center. The conference is an all day event beginning at 10:00 AM and closing at 5:30 with an awards presentation, that brings together more than 200 students from local middle and high schools.
The Model United Nations conference is supported by UNA-Tampa Bay and led by the USF Model United Nations Team. Students are required to conduct their own research prior to the conference and promote their assigned country’s position. The conference allows students to develop valuable skills in research, debate, negotiations, and consensus building on critical and complex global issues.
