United Nations Pre-College Summer Intensive
This pre-college program offers qualified rising juniors and seniors the opportunity to engage the United Nations, learning directly from officials of UN Programs, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) accredited to the United Nations, and Permanent Missions of Member States. Classes and workshops are held at UN organizations, and at the MMC campus 30 blocks from the UN. Through this week-long intensive, students gain valuable experience to further their knowledge of issues relating to international affairs, development, the environment, women’s empowerment, and peace and security issues. The program is led by the Chair of MMC’s International Studies Department, along with a retired senior official of the UN Secretariat.
