I am honored and thrilled to invite you to the thirty-ninth annual session of the Security Council Simulation at Yale (SCSY) to be held from October 13 to October 16, 2016. Following a long line of admirable Secretary Generals, I cannot wait to welcome you to Yale’s campus for a conference which, with its 38 years of history, has played a unique role in the Model UN circuit. By producing even more exciting, challenging and authentic crisis simulations and engaging social events and programs for delegates, my Secretariat aims to make SCSY 39 Yale’s best MUN conference yet.
SCSY 39 Secretariat’s main priorities this year are to create an incredible committee and social experience. By enhancing and diversifying the committee experience to organizing new and exciting social, academic and networking events for participants, SCSY 39 will be an enrichingand exciting opportunity to debate important issues and engage with other college students from around the world.
From our famed fantasy committees to more realistic and professional committees, the committee experience will provide sophisticated, high-level debates and exciting crises. This year’s conference aims to build on previous years and introduce substantial changes: formal rules of procedure, standardized technological integration, clearly defined portfolio powers, a rigorously trained dais, institutionalized financial aid and a richer, more international delegate community. It will feature contemporary, historical, and fantasy committees that will all emphasize professionalism and a focus on a realistic series of crises and events. New delegates will be able to experience a unique but quintessential MUN conference and our veteran delegates will enjoy a classic SCSY that has been upgraded based on their feedback. Our beautiful campus welcomes all delegates and teams, as will our traditional late night events: Lounge Night and Club Night.
On behalf of the SCSY XXXIX Secretariat and staff, I hope you will join us on Yale’s gorgeous campus this fall from October 13 – 16, 2016. We look forward to seeing you soon!
