A Message from the Secretary General

It is my great privilege to announce the 18th iteration of the United Nations Association at the University of Central Florida’s High School Model United Nations Conference, KnightMUNXVIII! With every passing year of KnightMUN, we seek to elevate our conference and to remain true to its core value: a competitive training conference for High School level Model United Nations delegates.  This year’s conference aims to be just as diverse as years past, featuring topical debate from all corners of the globe, as well as stimulating conversations about cultural issues currently at large in today’s world. The Seventh Secretary General of the United Nations, Kofi Annan, once said “Literacy unlocks the door to learning throughout life, is essential to development and health, and opens the way for democratic participation and active citizenship.” In keeping with those words, our conference theme for this year will centralize around education and literacy bridging the way to globalization in an ever-changing world.

From the executive board at UNA at UCF to the KnightMUN Secretariat and the KnightMUN XVIII staff, we are beyond excited to welcome you to KnightMUN!
