FAQ

In light of our shifted approach to hosting for TUSMUNC III, many of the questions below are not applicable to this year's conference. However, we have decided to leave this page open so that you may get a sense of how our conference operates when we are able to host in person. For those attending TUSMUNC III, please review the policies outlined below regarding attire and awards, as they are the only listed policies which will be kept in effect for this year.

What should delegates wear?

Delegates should wear western business attire to any MUN conference. This typically means an appropriate outfit consisting of some of the following articles: blazers, collared shirts, blouses, cardigans, skirts, slacks, flats, dress shoes, and pantsuits. Overall, delegates' attire should reflect how they wish to portray themselves to others in their committee - intelligent, capable young decision-makers.

 

Will awards be given to delegates?

Awards will be distributed during Closing Ceremonies. There will be committee specific awards, position paper awards, and a Best Delegation award. The committee specific awards will include an Honorable Mention, Outstanding Delegate, and Best Delegate; these are decided on for each committee by that committee's dais. However, we ask that delegates not focus on awards while participating in committee. Our chairs have worked hard to create a welcoming environment for delegates of all experience levels to engage in healthy, informed debate. We encourage negotiation, compromise, and working together rather than the gain of power and influence by means of intimidation, and this will be reflected in the distribution of awards. ​

 

What is the policy on technology?

This is a no-laptop conference.  This includes computers, cell phones, tablets, and any similar electronic devices.  We hope this encourages delegates to thoroughly research their topics and remain focused during the debate. All directives will be submitted handwritten to be typed up by our staff.
