Model United Nations

Model United Nations (MUN) is an academic activity in which students function as delegates in a simulated UN conference. The Competition Team typically takes delegates to 1-2 conferences per year where they engage in a simulation with students from dozens of other colleges and universities. MUN is primarily an educational activity, though top performing students and teams are typically acknowledged for their dedication and hard work. If you are interested in joining UNI's MUN Competition Team, please contact the group's student leaders at or the faculty advisor at


Political Science Society

The Political Science Society is the club for any and all UNI students majoring or minoring in any of the Department of Political Science's majors and minors, as well as any UNI students interested in political science. This club is non-partisan and has organized hunger banquets raising awareness about world hunger, panel discussions and guest lectures on a variety of topics, including American political dirty tricks, sexism in American society, and labor issues in Iowa. The club has put on voter registration drives, showings of several films, and a very popular post-election reconciliation chili supper.
