Yale Day

As YMUN is hosted in the heart of Yale’s campus, delegates can experience life at Yale through Yale Day on Friday, January 19th, 2018. Attend Master Lectures with Yale professors, explore Yale’s campus with a guided tour, or try a new activity with Yale’s student extracurricular organizations. Delegates can also have lunch with Yale professors and students and attend our College Admissions Panel. 


Global Exchange Program

The Global Exchange Program is a challenging, international relations program for highly motivated and exceptional delegates during Yale Day on the morning of Friday January 19th, 2018. This program aims to help delegates grapple with major issues and fundamental leadership questions that they will face as the next generation of leaders.

Delegates will have a chance to work very closely with some of Yale’s most impressive professors in lectures, seminars, and a town hall style debate. Delegates selected for the Global Exchange program will also be invited to a lunch with the program’s professors. 

Please view this page for details about the application. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until December 13, 2017. Contact asg.conference2@ymun.org for more information.
