Yale Secretariat Positions

Held in the heart of Taipei, YMUNT is a locally-rooted, internationally minded conference that brings together hundreds of students from Taiwan and around the world. Each year, we do our best to provide an immersive and innovative Model UN experience, allowing students to debate and tackle some of the most difficult challenges our society faces.
