Model United Nations of Park University
Through Park’s Model United Nations club, students have the opportunity to research different countries’ historical and political views and represent those countries during a mock United Nations session. Students travel to Chicago and New York each year to participate in national conferences. As part of their preparation for the fall conference, the Park team offers a Model United Nations conference for high school students each November called the Park Model United Nations.
People to People International
Park is home to one of the few university chapters of People to People International. Chapter members participate in a wide variety of activities both on and off campus and attend People to People International events around the globe.
