1 Week Away! #HAMUN45

Sponsors and Students,

Happy New Year! We hope you all have had a wonderful start to the new year (and the new decade!).

We are just 7 days away from conference! Our Secretariat and Staff are excited to host you all as we work to make this a fun and educational experience for everyone involved. Below are a few reminders and general housekeeping rules that will be implemented at HAMUN.

Teachers, we will be using Remind 101 for all live updates throughout conference, such as room changes, lunch/dinner announcements, lost items, etc. If you are not part of the HAMUN 45 Remind 101 group, please contact Eisha Khan at ekhan2@uh.edu with your name and school to be added so you may receive our communications.

Additionally, attached below are the guidelines for the HAMUN Code of Conduct and HAMUN Dress Code. We encourage all teachers, students, and parents to review our policies so that we may all have the best experience during conference.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions.

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone soon!

Graduating Seniors!

In 1975, a Memorial High School world history teacher, the late Andrea Flynn, decided to create a simulation of the United Nations as an educational tool for Houston high school students. That program would become the Houston Area Model United Nations (HAMUN).
