IDIA presents

Franklin HS Model UN Conference 2023

Welcome to FHSMUNC!

FHSMUNC 2023 will take place on October 28th, at Franklin High School in Somerset, NJ.

Now in its’ twelfth year, FHSMUNC is a partnership between Franklin High School in Somerset, NJ and IDIA. It is a great way for MUN newcomers and veterans alike to spend a day exercising their research, diplomacy, and writing skills. Designed to provide students the opportunity to continue their MUN experience in a small, one-day conference setting, FHSMUNC will take place in-person for the first time in three years, at Franklin High School.

Just like RUMUN and our other flagship programs, FHSMUNC will provide the same in-depth topic briefs, well-trained staff, and small committee sizes. 

Like all IDIA events, FHSMUNC will be staffed by Rutgers undergraduate students, and will feature the same in-depth topic briefs that delegates have come to expect.
