****This may change****

9:00AM-10:00AM: Conference Debrief

An educational experience like RUMUN is pointless if not contextualized.  RUMUN’s committee staff are specifically trained to bring the Model UN conference into every day relevance and to discuss ways delegates can continue their involvement in the substantive areas of the topics of debate.

10:00AM-11:00AM: Conference Culminating Activity

Further contextualization of the conference experience offers delegates a hands-on opportunity to participate in the conference theme.  Tailored specifically to RUMUN 2020, this activity will bring delegates out of their delegate roles, and challenge them to recognize the challenges in solving global issues.

12:00PM-1:00PM: Closing Ceremony
