Dear Delegates, Faculty Advisors, and Friends of WMHSMUN,

It is my privilege and honor to welcome you to the Thirty-first Session of the William & Mary High School Model United Nations Conference! WMHSMUN XXXI will be held in November in historic Williamsburg, and we hope you will join us.

Throughout its many years, the past thirty Secretariats of WMHSMUN have always tasked themselves with recreating the spirit of diplomacy that defines the United Nations. Through inventive committee structures, rigorous debate, and attention to detail, WMHSMUN has been tirelessly committed to substantive excellence, innovation, and the experience of our delegates, both inside and out of the committee room.

As WMHSMUN moves into its third decade, we are redoubling our commitment to being not only the premier high school Model UN experience in the nation, but also the leading international relations forum for university students across the globe. It is our mission to bring together and educate the next generation of leaders in international affairs—and, indeed, to bring together and educate students who are already outstanding leaders. It is our hope that WMHSMUN can serve as a platform for innovation and a space to build relationships for students with a global array of perspectives.

Our staff of over 120 William & Mary undergraduates will be working tirelessly through November 2017 to ensure that your experience at WMHSMUN XXXI is incredible, both substantively and socially, and we truly hope that you will join us this fall for a fantastic Model UN experience. Please browse through our website to see all of the committees and opportunities that will be offered at WMHSMUN. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. On behalf of the entire staff of the conference, I look forward to welcoming you in person in November at the Thirty-first Session of William & Mary High School Model United Nations!
