International Relations Council

The International Relations Council (IRC) is the most dynamic forum for international issues on the Princeton campus. Additionally, IRC is home to Princeton’s Model United Nations program, which hosts a conference for high schoolers every year and competes competitively on college circuits.

The Princeton Model United Nations Team (PMUNT) competes at Model United Nations conferences organized by other universities, usually four to five times per academic school year. PMUNT tryouts are held twice a year, and all Princeton undergraduate students are eligible to try out.

Attracting hundreds of delegates each year, the Princeton Model United Nations Conference (PMUNC) is one of the premier high-school level Model UN conferences in the country. The conference is run entirely by Princeton undergraduate students.

The Princeton Diplomatic Invitational (PDI) is the IRC’s collegiate-level Model UN conference. PDI offers an innovative, fast-paced, and dynamic crisis experience for all of its delegates, and like PMUNC, is run entirely by Princeton undergraduate students.
