The Model United Nations (MUN) is an all-collegiate organization centered on the public
debate of international affairs. This organization allows students from multiple majors
to become involved in a large-scale simulation of the United Nations General Assembly.
During this Conference, usually held in Saint Louis, MO, participants represent the
role of another nation's delegation to the United Nations. This experience provides
first-hand knowledge of the difficulties and complexities of real-life international
relations. By taking the learning experience outside of the classroom and working
with other universities, students enjoy a unique experience.
South Asian Student Association
The purpose of the South Asian Student Association is to promote awareness about the
South Asian culture throughout the campus. The goals of this organization are to educate
and expose the Illinois Wesleyan community to various aspects of South Asian culture;
including observation of holidays, current events, history, and other cultural activities.
These goals are achieved through numerous activities that celebrate this unique group.
The culmination of these activities is the annual cultural show that highlights the
talents of the club members.
