The Model United Nations at TIU is a varsity team with over 60 members from 15 countries around the world, and has become the first university team founded by international students. The MUN is a simulation of conversations and debates held in the same fashion as the actual United Nations, and the diverse student body at TIU makes it the ideal environment to get first-hand experience with the unique cultures and values of people around the world.

With coaching from Thomas Blackwood, Professor of Sociology, the club members select a president to lead the team through weekly mock discussions and debates in preparation for conferences across the globe. Students new to the university and Japan find the MUN a great way to feel at home in a new culture, while developing academic knowledge in addition to soft skills like public speaking, debating, and writing.
