Students will be representing Haiti at this year’s conference
Muhammad University of Islam is participating in the 2015 National High School Model United Nations Conference. This Conference is an academic simulation of the United Nations where students play the role of delegates from different countries and attempt to solve real world issues using the policies and perspectives of their assigned country.
Currently in its 41st year, the National High School Model United Nations (NHSMUN) Conference has established itself as the premier conference on the high school Model UN circuit. Every March, NHSMUN hosts over 3000 participants from 150 schools and over 20 countries to represent their assigned delegations in simulated committee meetings and plenary sessions. NHSMUN is a culmination of the efforts of our staff to bring together a worldwide student body.
This year, it will take place in New York, NY on March 4-7, 2015 and MUI students are excited about the chance to go.
Muhammad University of Islam has accepted to represent the country of Haiti at this year’s conference. Haiti, which just celebrated its independence is a country with an intriguing history concerning black people. Students will examine the landing of Christopher Columbus in 1492, Haiti as a slave state, the courageous Haitian Revolution of 1791, Haiti as an independent republic to the more current history of the massive 2010 earthquake.

These historical topics will assist the students in understanding the viewpoint of the Haitian people. Therefore establishing policies that will represent and benefit them. Although it is the goal of the Conference for delegates to use historical and current policies of their assigned country to solve global issues, it is our intention to utilize this simulation to train our students to apply the universal teachings of The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad to accomplish the above stated goal.
