MUN High School Conference

Since 1994, the Baylor MUN team has sponsored a High School Model United Nations Conference each Fall. Beginning with only six schools and 94 students representing 8 member states in 1994, the conference has grown considerably. By 1997 Baylor's MUN team hosted over 300 students from 21 schools representing 51 member states. Model UN team members host the conference, serving as the Secretariat, committee chairs, judges, expert witnesses, conference coordinators, and faculty-student liaisons.

Baylor will host the conference on Saturday, October 27, 2018.
