The Ursuline School Model United Nations
Middle School Conference
November 21, 2020
Dear delegates, advisors, and honored guests,
It is our honor to welcome you to the third annual The Ursuline School Model United Nations Conference! We hope that this conference may build on our goal of challenging delegates to work together, even from opposing sides of conflict, towards a common goal of a brighter future for all.
At TUSMUNC, we believe that it is imperative now more than ever to show our rising generations just how much can be accomplished through diplomatic discourse and respectful negotiation. This is why we have been hard at work since the outbreak of COVID-19 to figure out how we can provide a platform for young delegates to engage in thoughtful debate and prepare solutions to high-stakes issues. For more information on our approach to this year's conference, see here.
Our theme for TUSMUNC III is "A New Dawn." In each committee, our delegates will experience their respective worlds being brought to a turning point; we leave it in their hands as to how they see fit to proceed. Faced with such a scenario, we implore our delegates to ask themselves how much they (and those they speak for) are willing to leave in the past and how they will ensure that a step forward into a new future doesn't leave anyone behind.
In these times, it can feel as though the only certainty is uncertainty. At TUSMUNC, delegates will be given the power to take back control of the worlds they step into; we look forward to seeing them rise to the challenge.
Maeve Reynolds and Cecilia Visco
Secretaries-General of TUSMUNC
