Harvard National Model United Nation Conference

USIU delegates participated in the annual 2014 session of the Harvard National Model United Nation (HNMUN) international relations simulation which brings together 2,200 college and university students from over 65 nations.

Students engage in enlightening debates over the most pressing international issues for both Kenya and East Africa as interested parties. They also gain insight into the workings of the United Nations and the dynamics of international relations by assuming the roles of UN representatives and members of other international bodies and national cabinets.

 

Windows to the World Program

This program aims to provide students with an experience of cultural diversity with which to enrich their university education. It is organized once in a year and students visit the countries of origin of the foreign languages that are taught in the university to learn and have hands-on experience of the culture, communication, social system, infrastructure, technologies and customs of the people.

This year 2014, students of Minor in Japanese are organizing an education tour of Japan. This is an opportunity for them to be able to use the language skills they have acquired and widen the horizon of multicultural understanding and global perspective.
