National Model United Nations

Each year, PHC students form a delegation to travel to New York City to represent their assigned countries (and PHC) in simulated United Nations committee meetings. They prepare throughout the year for the international spring conference, during which they work to write, debate and pass resolutions to practice solving world-wide problems.

In 2011 and 2012, Patrick Henry College was recognized as an Outstanding Delegation (the highest award possible) throughout the conference, and also received numerous individual awards. This club provides an excellent opportunity to network with other students from around the world and practice the art of diplomacy. The club does have to raise its own funds annually in order to participate in the national conference.
