The AISMUN program was founded in 1991 and throughout its twenty-eight years of existence has seen notable growth. In recent years, Model United Nations at AIS has become much more than an after school activity. MUN is the largest and most active extracurricular activity at AIS. It is managed by a proven group of seniors and juniors whose organizational structure is set each year by a vote and decided by a simple majority. The Club draws many of its most enthusiastic members from academic courses offered at AIS like IB World Politics and the Model United Nations class, where students study the fundamental principles of international relations. The result for the club is that students bring to bear the knowledge and skills developed in class on the debates discussed during club meetings and conferences.
The Spring Conferences have been an extension of this commitment and involvement from AIS students. This year, it represents for the senior organizers the culmination of years dedication, not just to the club they have helped shape, but to the issues and causes that the club is dedicated to help solve.
