EagleMUNC stands in solidarity with the Black community and the Black Lives Matter movement during these troubling times following senseless acts of racism which have resulted in the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and too many others. The systematic racism that exists in the United States has been occurring since before our nation’s founding. While this is far overdue, it is time for all of us to come together to recognize the responsibility we have to fight against oppression and suppression. We encourage our staff and EagleMUNC guests to recognize the power of their vote in reaching our ideals. As an organization that works to find solutions to our world's most pressing problems, we believe this circumstance too has solutions but requires doers and action. Silence and neutrality is choosing the side of the oppressor which is unacceptable.
Racism does not have a place in the EagleMUNC community. We commit to using our platform to support movements like Black Lives Matter and work towards creating a just society. Our organization vows to continue to create an opportunity for students to learn and discuss issues of diversity so that the oppressed voices are heard and understood. The skills and knowledge students from all over the world gain through Model United Nations can, and should, be used to make the world a brighter and safer place for everyone, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or culture. EagleMUNC is committed to the advancement of a globally-conscious society. We believe that through a collaborative community and forward thought, everyone can be educated on the struggles people, especially those of color, face and begin to conceive of solutions to racism, bigotry, xenophobia, sexism, and other forms of discrimination.
Dear Advisors, Delegates, and Friends of EagleMUNC,
I am honored and excited to welcome you to our ninth iteration of EagleMUNC! We are grateful for your choice to consider us as a conference you and your delegation would like to attend. After much disappointment of EagleMUNC VIII’s cancellation, we have been overjoyed and eager to begin our work planning next year's conference. We are working hard on our end to ensure to each delegate and every advisor that EagleMUNC IX will be the most innovative and engaging conference in the Model UN Circuit yet. From Friday’s opening ceremony to Sunday’s final bang of our gavel, delegates will be immersed in their committees through our 40-hour-simulation, embracing their roles, solving problems comprehensively, and collaborating with their peers. We will challenge and push delegates to resolve spontaneous problems, adapt to new situations, learn everything they can to the fullest, make friendships and connections, and enjoy their time at EagleMUNC. Our hope is that delegates will take away so many more valuable insights, knowledge, and skills than what they will arrive with.
EagleMUNC IX will offer eighteen diverse and unique committees that are specialized and crisis driven. Our committees will range from classic General Assembly experiences, to unconventional crisis committees including our Ad-Hoc Committee of the Secretary-General and our Thematic committee. From our General Assemblies to our Crisis Committees, each delegate will be tasked with reaching realistic solutions to our world's most pressing issues while relying on teamwork and diplomacy to do so. Delegates will have the opportunity to participate in substantive and fulfilling debate and will partake in the sharing of different perspectives and ideas in all of our committee’s forms and styles. Our average EagleMUNC committee size is about 30 delegates, with an unprecedented delegate-to-staff ratio of 5:1.
EagleMUNC IX is proud to offer its most diverse array of committees with a wide range of differing time periods and geographic regions. However, our assorted committees are bound by one overarching theme: “Building a Brighter Future.” As we consider the world we live in we must decide whether we hold onto our past successes or reach for new technological, social, and political advancements. During EagleMUNC IX, delegates will analyze and debate the actions of past people and parties that embraced change and strove to create a bigger and better future for generations to come. Committees such as Tycoons and Silicon Cabinet will lead delegates to explore how technological advancement can be used to improve the lives of thousands, but also how it may endanger the lives of billions and lead to more inequality if left unchecked. Committees such as the Convention on International Trade In Endangered Species and The World Tourism Organization will encourage delegates to discover how environmental issues disproportionately impact developing nations. By employing political agreements and advancements as well as technological developments, delegates will find ways to improve the environment while also alleviating poverty. As delegates immerse themselves in committees such as these listed above, we invite them to step out of their comfort zone and explore points of view they have not yet considered. Delegates will strive to reach solutions that benefit individuals, nations, and the world while trying to achieve the common good of society today and in the future.
We are fortunate for the opportunity to host our conference in a city with such a rich history, something that makes our conference extraordinarily unique and special. As the progenitor of the American Revolution, Boston has a complex and fascinating history but also is the home and center of education and American culture. This year we are excited to present a committee that is based in the New England Area, The Journey and Settlement of the Pilgrims. This committee will take place around the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower landing in the New World. This encourages delegates to not only embrace their position and time period but also to embrace the greater Boston area and the influence it has had on the creation of the United States. To enhance this experience and encourage all of our delegates to take advantage of our conference's special and important location, we invite you to come with us as we explore as much of the historic city as we can. We welcome you to join us in our Thursday@Boston program in which we will provide a guided tour of some of Boston’s most exciting and historical venues. We hope you enjoy the city as much as we do!
