The International Affairs and Debate Association is a highly active organization that hosts both a high school Model UN conference and a premier collegiate Model UN conference. We focus on crisis style simulations and travel to various away conferences. Our goal is to involve students and people from all disciplines and backgrounds in the important work of international affairs and the meaningful practice of respectful and organized debate.
We meet on Sundays at 3pm in room 022 of the Biobehavioral health 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 undecided students, graduate students, and students who just never seem to leave Penn State… At PSIADA, we do so much more than just MUN.
