International Relations Council

The International Relations Council (IRC) is the largest and most dynamic forum for international issues on the Princeton campus. It meets throughout the year, offering chances to debate and discuss global topics of interest, often with a speaker from the Princeton community. 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 students are eligible to try out regardless of year or past experience.

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