Dear Future Delegates and Honored Advisors,
My name is Sarah Kelsey and I have both the honor and the privilege to serve as Secretary General for Kennesaw State University’s 31st High School Model United Nations Conference. It is my honor to welcome you, on behalf of the Secretariat and entire staff, to KSUHSMUN 2017.
Founded in 1986, Kennesaw State’s HSMUN Conference has grown to become one of the largest high school Model UN conferences in the Southeast United States. This is due to the high level of support we receive each year from KSU’s students, faculty, and staff in conjunction with attending high schools. The KSUHSMUN Conference strives to provide high school students with a friendly learning environment whereby students gain valuable experience and cultivate professional skills in debate, problem-solving, compromise and negotiation, and writing. Students attending KSUHSMUN are invited and encouraged to participate in constructive discussions regarding ongoing international issues and the global institutions endeavoring to find solutions. We hope to inspire and facilitate the development of global citizenship and future world leaders by encouraging delegates to explore the nuances of diplomacy and international relations, understand the inner-workings of international institutions, and recognize the nature of issues which affect all of humanity.
In keeping with these objectives, this year’s theme is “Pursuing the Sustainable Development Goals.” We look forward to challenging delegates to formulate solutions and answers for complex problems and questions facing the world today. We call upon delegates to “think outside the box” when imagining solutions and to “broaden their horizons” with non-traditional solutions while researching.
Please check this website for updates from the Secretariat and details concerning registration, position paper submissions, and delegate preparation. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions regarding KSUHSMUN, elements of Model UN, or related subjects, please contact the Secretariat at ksuHSMUN2017@gmail.com.
On behalf of the KSUHSMUN Secretariat and staff, Kennesaw State’s Department of Political Science, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, and the Society for Global Diplomacy, thank you for your interest, participation, and dedication. We look forward to seeing you March 2017.
