Dear Delegates,


It is our pleasure to officially invite you to the eleventh iteration of the Five College Model United Nations Conference! The conference will be held from March 23rd to March 25th 2018 at Mount Holyoke’s nationally renowned campus. Despite being tucked away in the small town of South Hadley in Western Massachusetts, the Five Colleges (Mount Holyoke College along with Amherst College, University of Massachusetts, Hampshire College, and Smith College) are proud to offer delegates from across the country an opportunity to be welcomed into the Pioneer Valley Community.

FCMUN XI is our biggest and most exciting conference yet. This year we are introducing new, dynamic committees to provide every delegate with an unbelievable experience. We are staying true to our roots as a small crisis conference with interesting committees designed to challenge every level of delegate on the circuit. In addition, FCMUN ensures that USGs of Committees and Summits are seasoned delegates who recognize the importance of including an array of realistic and fictional committees that are flexibly both fast-paced and engaging to enhance the delegate experience. Delegates will be able to engage in historical, contemporary, and futuristic universes. We are also very excited to announce the Secretary General’s ad-hoc. We can’t wait to see you and the ideas you bring to debate!

Together with my Secretariat we dare you to deviate and invite you to join us! We look forward to meeting you all in the Spring!
