This work in crafting and promoting particular solutions is especially important in training future leaders in a globalized world. Students' experience in engaging with these issues, with other students, is an important step in helping to create and develop an international community, and to embrace the challenges of a more global future. The MUN Society also seeks to provide students with the skills necessary to succeed academics and in life, by giving students an interdisciplinary opportunity to work in multiple fields at once, as well as an experiential, deliberative dimension beyond what can be simulated in the classroom.
