Letter from the Executive Director


It is with deep pleasure that I welcome you to the official website of YMUNI 2017. The Yale Model United Nations Institute is the newest constituent program of the Yale International Relations Association (YIRA). YIRA is known for running some of the world’s largest and best high school Model United Nations conferences -- from New Haven, to China, Taipei, Seoul, and Budapest. Over the course of our history, we have educated thousands of students from around the world in international relations, and we are continually seeking to expand our educational impact. We now introduce to you the Yale Model United Nations Institute (YMUNI 2017).

YMUNI serves as YIRA’s premier summer program about international relations, leadership, and Model United Nations right here at Yale in beautiful New Haven, Connecticut. The program is entirely designed and run by Yale students themselves, who are all deeply committed to studying our world, educating younger generations of scholars, and spreading the powerful learning tool that is Model United Nations.

We invite you to join YMUNI 2017 from July 30-August 5, 2017, to learn more about the world, to experience Yale, and to polish your MUN and leadership skills. But most of all, we invite you to join YMUNI 2017 to challenge yourself to become the best student, scholar, and leader you can possibly be.

Welcome to the Yale Model United Nations Institute, YIRA’s newest program. We’ll see you in New Haven.
