The Walb Student Union at Indiana Purdue Fort Wayne is the official venue for the duration of the MMUN Conference. Participants will lodge at the Holiday Inn Hotel, just 0.6 miles away from IPFW campus.

Eligibility

The Montessori Model UN Program and its conferences are designed for Upper Elementary and Middle School students ages 9-15. Teachers are required to take the MMUN New Teacher Workshop and watch the MMUN4UN Webinar prior to registering a school group to attend any of the MMUN Conferences.

Because the MMUN4UN Webinar Video contains new procedures and policies, all MMUN coordinators whether experienced or new must watch the webinar video to ensure student delegates will be properly prepared for the upcoming MMUN Conferences.
