Dress Code

Discussing world issues is an admirable task that should be taken on with great honor. Since students are expected to take on the role of a United Nations diplomat, it is expected that students dress appropriately.  Students are required to dress in the very least, business casual but we would prefer business professional. Examples of appropriate dress are outlined below.

  • Women: Dress pants, khaki pants, skirts or professional dresses (both knee length), sweaters, high heels (reasonable height), flats.
  • Men: Dress shirts, sweater vests, polos, dress pants, khaki pants, dress shoes, ties.

To step your game to business professional, add a suit or sport coat and ditch the khaki pants for black pants.

Conference Leadership

The conference general sessions will be presided by a Secretary General and a Deputy Secretary General. Each committee session, will be presided by a Director and an Assistant Director.

A complete list of this year’s conference staff will be announced later in February.
