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. There will be free food for those who participate.
Over the last year, PSIADA has taken the initiative to host debates between various campus organizations as a means to educate the Penn State community about foreign affairs and create friendships with other organizations. These debates are open and free to the public. Check back for information regarding debates in the coming year.
Both at meetings and as special events, PSIADA hosts various speakers about international affairs and today's world. Many of these individuals are professors within the Penn State community who are distinguished and engaging. These events are great ways to interact with professors outside of the classroom and to hear more about their specific research.
As a way to engage members and foster friendships, new members can sign up to be paired with an older mentor as part of our Buddy Program. Older Buddies serve as a way to welcome newer members, as well as a resource for questions about PSIADA.
