The Auburn Model United Nations (MUN) competition team competed at the Southern Regional Model United Nations (SRMUN) competition in Charlotte, North Carolina, from March 21-23, 2024. Twenty undergraduate students competed at the competition, the most Auburn has fielded at SRMUN Charlotte. This year's team was comprised of more than ten first-year members. 

Team members represented the delegations of the Russian Federation, South Africa and Nepal. The Russian Federation Team placed in the top seven overall delegations and received a Distinguished Delegation Award for its overall representation of the nation on a range of committees, including the General Assembly Plenary, the Security Council, the Peacebuilding Commission, the Commission on Narcotic Drugs and UN Habitat.

Additionally, Political Science senior and MUN team president Joanne Kim received individual honors by being recognized for the Best Position Paper, receiving a perfect score of 100/100, and Best Delegation on the UN Security Council.

Auburn's Model UN team is supported and housed in the Department of Political Science and College of Liberal Arts.
