Model United Nation (MUN)

This is a series of courses for students who attend the annual National Model UN Conference in New York each spring.  In the fall before the conference (per PSC 478), the UIS delegation forms and members gather information about the country they will represent. In the spring (per PSC 483), the delegation submits resolutions to the National MUN and attends the conference, a simulation of the United Nations Organization, where resolutions are discussed, debated, and voted upon by all countries represented in the council and committees.  Professor Adriana Crocker (PAC 368, 206-8329) is the faculty adviser and instructor.

International House at UIS

International House allows you to live with other students from multiple foreign countries and the U.S. and learn about the world through the eyes of your housemates.  Share food, fashion, music, customs, and perspectives on life that you might otherwise encounter only through extensive travel and expense.  See International House for details.

Speakers/Films on International Topics

UIS provides many opportunities to hear a variety of speakers or films on a range of global issues.  These include the UIS Speakers Series, the World Affairs Council of Central Illinois and the Foreign and Independent Film Series.  To be added to an email list to receive occasional announcements of these events, please email Dr. Frost.
