IDIA and Rutgers University present

Rutgers Model United Nations 2022

Welcome to RUMUN!

RUMUN 2022 will take place from November 17-20.

Rutgers Model United Nations is one of the largest and most well-regarded MUN conferences in the United States. The flagship program of the Institute for Domestic & International Affairs, Inc., started empowering students in 1992 when a group of students from Rutgers University sought to establish an international studies program at the university.  Initially founded at Brett Hall on Rutgers’ historic College Avenue campus, RUMUN has grown dramatically in size, bringing more than 40,000 students together to discuss and address global issues.

RUMUN is characterized by its in-depth topic briefs, well-trained staff, and small commitee sizes. Backed by IDIA, all RUMUN staffers are Rutgers undergraduate students who complete a year-long training program before running the conference. Attend to learn why RUMUN is one of the most acclaimed MUN conferences in the country.

As an IDIA-sponsored conference, IDIA adheres to a uniform set of rules governing participant conduct, debate style, and awards. Please see detailed policy documents below, and email info@idia.net with any questions.

In accordance with local, state, and federal guidance as well as the protocols established by the Hyatt, IDIA will be enforcing several new COVID-19 rules for all conference participants, chaperones, and staff.

  • All individuals attending the conference in any capacity are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and to provide proof of vaccination.
  • All participants, chaperones, and staff are required to wear a face mask or cloth covering at all times on conference premises, except when in own hotel rooms.
  • The overall capacity of the conference has been limited to make committee rooms less dense and allow for social distancing.
  • Even as IDIA takes all possible measures to ensure a safe conference environment, there is always an inherent risk in any group activity. As such, this year’s permission slip will include a COVID-19 waiver that is required for all participants.
