For the past 35 years, the Security Council Simulation at Yale has been the premiere crisis-based Model UN conference on the college circuit. SCSY combines innovative crisis committees, the extensive resources offered through our location on Yale’s campus, and unparalleled social events. In the course of four days, you will engage in fascinating debate, meet students from more than thirty national and international universities, and unwind at our lounge and club nights. We hope to welcome you to SCSY in just a few months!
Historic, Traditional, Innovative, Fictional – the broad range of committees offered at SCSY makes us one of the most diverse conferences on the circuit. Whether you are discussing the implications of the BP Oil Spill in “The Deepwater Horizon Crisis”, rewriting history in “The Peloponnesian War – Joint Crisis Committee”, or debating Syria’s future in “Syrian Uprising”, you will be immersed in exhilarating simulations of historical and current international conditions. Reaching far beyond the traditional bounds of Model UN, we draw upon the most passionate and talented members of Yale’s undergraduate community to offer committees in their respective fields of expertise.
The interactive crisis committee experience forms the heart of SCSY. Unlike committees at other college conferences, every single one of our simulations is based on the crisis model in which delegates must respond to unforeseen fictional events. Articles, twitter blasts, breaking news videos, real life visitors will be some of the many ways in which we introduce you to the complex problems you will be solving. Our dedicated crisis staff works around the clock to respond to the decisions made by the delegates using creative multimedia capabilities. The fast-paced nature of our committees will push you to the limits of cooperation, adaptability and creativity.
After spending your day defusing diplomatic dilemmas or rebuilding a post-apocalyptic society, celebrate a job well done at SCSY’s famed social events. Relax, unwind and enjoy two nights of private parties!
Join us for Lounge night to socialize and meet your fellow delegates in a chill, laid-back atmosphere. The next day, dance the night away with your fellow delegates at a nightclub rented out exclusively for the conference.
