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.
