From the desk of the Secretary-General of RCMUN VI:
Esteemed Delegates, Advisors, and Friends,
It is my pleasure to officially announce the sixth session of Red Cedar Model United Nations (RCMUN). At this time, I am happy to present that RCMUN VI will be held February 25th, 2017 at the Business College Complex on Michigan State’s campus. Our staffers and I look forward to illustrating and highlighting the best of what RCMUN and Michigan State University has to offer. At RCMUN, we strive towards providing an enriching educational experience charged with a thought provoking and collaborative environment that RCMUN has offered in the past.
This past year, RCMUN V presented a variety of innovative and stimulating committees and will continue to improve and enhance the overall experience for delegates at RCMUN VI. In our General Assemblies, delegates represented sovereign nations to resolve challenging issues such as drug trafficking, the destruction of cultural artifacts, and labor rights. Delegates portrayed a varying degree of unique roles in our Specialized Committees to discuss issues such as the public health within slums, the Paris Peace Conference’s reparation debate, the NFL’s crisis on the Washington Redskins logo, and access to microfinance and crediting. In our Crisis Committees, delegates embodied the National Assembly during Nixon’s Cabinet in the early 1970s and The Big Three Executive’s and UAW’s joint crisis revolving around the Treaty of Detroit.
As my staff and I ready ourselves for the conference, we plan on continuing to place our schools, advisors, and delegates as the top priority in order to provide the best possible experience. We, as a united body, encourage advisors to provide feedback and ask questions in order to help us to continue maintaining an exceptional and smooth experience. Furthermore, I urge schools, advisors, and delegates to take advantage of our resources through our Community Outreach Program. In the past years, RCMUN and MSUMUN staff members have travelled to schools in order to help students engage in research, public speaking, writing, and debate skills. I expect our Outreach Program to continue to strengthen the relationship our staffers and I have between advisors and delegates, while providing valuable educational opportunities to students. More now than ever, our Outreach Program has been re-designed to provide schools with an instructional lesson plan personalized towards their own delegates’ needs. If you are interested in our Community Outreach Program, please visit our Outreach tab located here on our site and fill out the form. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me personally at RCMUN@msumun.org. I, along with our fantastic staff and Secretariat, look forward to working with you this year.
