The Florida Model United Nations was formed in 2006 to promote Model United Nations as a co-curricular program promoting international education. The conference is open to any college/university student or colleges/universities with a formal Model UN program or with an interest in furthering international education.
Florida Model UN's mission is to support and encourage the development of Model UN on college campuses and assist the training of new and old delegates.
