The European International Model United Nations Conference

The Conference
The European International Model United Nations Conference (TEIMUN) is an annual student conference which blends educational activities and social interaction using a number of inter-related, hands-on experiences. The conference was first held in 1987.
 
Each year, hundreds of the brightest students from countries around the world attend the conferences to engage in discussions about the world’s most pressing issues and to develop as young leaders and global citizens.
 
Beginning in 2009 WVU Student Affairs, in partnership with the International Studies Program, began sponsoring students to participate in this student conference as delegates.
