Community Engagement

The International Relations Council (IRC) at Northeastern University hosts three conferences focused on community outreach during the year:

  • Middle School Model United Nations – Saturday, end of November, 2014
  • Invitational Model United Nations – Friday, first week of March, 2015 and
  • Regional Model United Nations – Friday & Saturday, second week of May, 2015

These three conferences are held in partnership with the United Nations Association of Greater Boston (UNAGB), an off campus non-profit. Our team here at Northeastern has been partnering with UNAGB since 2003 to host these conferences on campus. Northeastern students provide the upper secretariat for each conference and coordinate all staff training. We pride ourselves in offering quality training that enables staff members of each conference to give those students participating in the program the best experience.

We believe this type of community engagement is critical to our mission as a student group. It highlights the potential for internationally-focused experiential education to reach all ages groups.
