GLIMUN 2014

A True UN Simulation

The Great Lakes Invitational Model United Nations (GLIMUN), our flagship conference, has been running since GLICA incorporated in 1973. While the format has changed slightly over the years, the intent has not. GLIMUN is designed to very closely simulate the diplomatic activity that takes place within the United Nations Headquarters building, and in related symposia and summits across the globe. We gladly serve a range of delegates, from newcomers to the highly experienced.

GLIMUN 2014 Offering

  • 3 General Assembly Committees
  • 3 Economic and Social Council Committees
  • Security Council
  • General Assembly and ECOSOC Plenary Sessions
  • A Special Crisis Session
