United Nations Day

ODU United Nations Day 2021

The ODU Model UN Society's premier on-campus activity is Friday the 15 of October, commemorating the creation of the United Nations in 1945. ODU United Nations Day is your opportunity to learn about simulations, conferences and how the United Nations really works. Over 100 countries will be represented by ODU students.

UN Day welcomes students from all over campus to be an ambassador for a day.

UN Day 2020 was an extraordinary success. Combined with MonarchMUN, students from 7 universities attended. It was the first on-line Model UN simulation for any of us. ODU showed the way; it can be done, with a brilliant result. This year UN day will be hosted in person in accordance with Old Dominion University's COVID-19 Policies.


Friday, 15 October 2021, 9.00 am to 3.00 pm


This year UN Day will be held in person at Old Dominion University's Webb center.


All ODU students are welcome. The event is free!
