Secretary General's Welcome
Dear Delegates and Advisors,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the thirteenth annual session of the American University of Sharjah Model United Nations' (AUSMUN) website.
With the exceptional delegates we receive every year, our dedication to providing the best quality conference is elevated with each new session. This year will mark thirteen years of enthusiasm, dedication, drive to learn and discover for everyone affiliated with AUSMUN. New opportunities will thus be brought, in order to grow through an experience that engulfs learning on different levels. With "Sapere Aude" as a motto, we hope to deliver an encounter that will make you strive to never stop learning.
With the hopes that this journey will inspire you, and teach you not only about debating, politics, and the UN, but also about yourself, and your true potential. I would like to thank you for your interest in our conference and we hope to see you this February!
A few years ago, AUS participated in the Harvard Model United Nations, the largest and oldest of its kind in the world. We were able to learn first-hand about different aspects of the international political system and grasp our role as citizens of the world. Marking the 10th anniversary of AUS, local high schools in the United Arab Emirates shared a similar experience with the birth of AUSMUN. In a course of months, students from AUS worked relentlessly to create a conference that both delegates and advisors would enjoy and dearly remember. We proudly recall the immense success of the first AUSMUN. The delegates left the conference with a significantly improved understanding of international relations and organizations. We strive to replicate that remarkable feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction each year. This year marks the 14th Annual Model United Nations at the American University of Sharjah. Despite the unprecedented challenges posed by the COVID 19 pandemic, AUSMUN promises to uphold its legacy and make this year's conference one worth remembering for the years to come.
