February 28th – March 3rd, 2019


Letter from the Secretary-General


Hello! My name is Ruhee Wadhwania and I am the Secretary-General for UC Berkeley’s 23rd Model United Nations Conference (UCBMUN XXIII).

After 23 years, we are proud to be one of the oldest Model UN programs in the country, bringing hundreds of delegates from top universities across the world to San Francisco, California, to debate sociopolitical issues that impact us all today. This year, UCBMUN XXIII will be hosted in San Francisco’s Financial District, where delegates will participate in committees on topics ranging from the Laws of War for the Cyber Era to the North Korean Board of Longevity. Our delegates come from diverse fields, colleges, and regions, and unite after months of preparation and research to develop concrete solutions to today’s major geopolitical issues. Our conference creates opportunities for the political players of the next generation to engage in multi-faceted dialogue, gain comprehensive perspectives on world issues, develop a network of individuals invested in our world’s future, and learn about the trials and triumphs of international diplomacy.

Berkeley, California, was home to the first Model UN conference in the world. This city has long been home to the ideals of free speech and thought, and cultivated a culture that encourages everyone to challenge the status quo. Our committee topics this year reflect those principles in conjunction with those of the fast-paced, technologically driven culture of Silicon Valley, making our conference more engaging than ever. We invite you to join us this year from February 28th to March 3rd, 2019, for this exciting experience! If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to me at secretarygeneral@ucbmun.org.
