Countdown to BUSUN XXIII!

Days Hours Minutes Seconds

Letter from the Secretaries-General

Dear Esteemed Delegation and Advisors,

On behalf of the Brown Model United Nations program, we are honored to invite you to the Twenty-Third Annual Session of the Brown University Simulation of the United Nations (BUSUN), which will be held on the Brown University campus from November 8-10, 2019. We are proud to say that BUSUN will welcome over 900 students and 100 advisors to our campus in November. While BUSUN continues to grow and evolve each year, we are excited to continue some of the traditions that we believe make our conference special. Delegations return to year after year because of our small committee sizes, informed and passionate chairs, and welcoming atmosphere. As a Secretariat and staff, we value diplomacy and do our best to create a productive and positive experience for all delegates and advisors.

We are thrilled to announce that the conference theme for BUSUN XXIII is "Engagement Through The Ages." Broader and more open to interpretation than at past conferences, this theme is designed to encourage delegates to think critically not only about methods of expanding civic engagement but about the ways we—as individuals, communities, and countries—govern ourselves. Individual committees will span various levels of governance and diplomacy, from the municipal scene to the transnational arena, across dozens of regions and time periods in pursuit of this goal. We also hope that delegates leave with the understanding that there is no age requirement for engagement, encouraging them to put their passion and innovative to work at BUSUN and beyond. We are confident that delegates at BUSUN this year, like those who have attended BUSUN in the past, will participate in engaging debate that challenges their understanding of current events and historical topics.

On behalf of the BUSUN Secretariat and our entire staff, we hope that you will be able to join us in November. Please contact our Director of External Affairs, Ryan Millard, at with any questions or concerns. We look forward to welcoming you to BUSUN XXIII!
