James (Colby) Colbertson 

Colby ColbertsonColby is the former President and attended numerous conferences, including the November 2018 NMUN conference in Xi’an, China."Stockton Model UN helps its members develop professional skills such as writing, debating, and networking. But it is more than that, as it is steeped with a sense of camaraderie that allows students to foster friendships with people they normally wouldn't have the chance to meet, whether they be from completely different majors or from different countries across the globe. We pride ourselves on having a team passionate about diplomacy and world affairs and take pride in passing that passion on to all new members. Personally, Stockton Model UN has had a massive influence on my academic and day to day life, enriching both in ways I never anticipated when joining the club 4 years ago."

Why we MUN!

The danger of a single story

Our lives, our cultures, are composed of many overlapping stories. Novelist Chimamanda Adichie (video) tells the story of how she found her authentic cultural voice -- and warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding.

This video talk was presented at an official TED conference.

At its core, the UN is a forum that provides a space for people around the world to tell their stories. We need to hear more than one story to identify the challenges we face and develop innovative solutions to make the future more preferable for all of us, not just some of us.
