The Penn State International Affairs and Debate Association (PSIADA) is a highly active organization that involves individuals in the important work of international affairs and the meaningful practice of respectful and organized debate. PSIADA hosts a high school Model UN conference, a premier collegiate Model UN conference, and additional events. 

We meet on Sundays at 3 pm in room 350 of the Health and Human Development Building. We practice simulations for our conferences, discuss current event topics, host mock debates, train for away conferences, and invite guest speakers. PSIADA is home to students from engineering, business, political science, language majors, communications, and every major in between. We are home to all disciplines and backgrounds, and our membership is made up of both undergraduate  and graduate students. At PSIADA, we do so much more than just MUN.


PSIADA competes in various away conferences across the North American College Model UN circuit. These are great opportunities to experience the beautiful campuses of other colleges, debate real world international issues, and represent Penn State!

Sign up to go to away conferences!


MiniMUN is a shortened Model United Nations Conference held several times a year by PSIADA. It is typically 6 hours – just one afternoon – and allows students from the university to participate in some of the premier crisis based model UN simulations in Pennsylvania. MiniMUN is free and welcoming to all Penn State students. Come enjoy international politics, lively debate and most importantly free food!

Sign up to attend on February 24 from 12-6 in the Business Building.


PSIADA hosts two conferences per academic year, PUNC, which is our Collegiate Model UN conference, and PHUNC, which is our premier all-crisis committee high school conference.
