In the United Nations Society, training is a key part of what makes our delegates strong competitors and key allies in any committee.  Our training directors pride themselves on their multi-faceted training program for delegates new and old.  With something for anyone in the society, from fresh first-year to grizzled masters student, we hope that your come and learn something from our sessions.

Your Training Directors


Sam Pett

Sam is in his third year of Global and International Studies with a specialization in Global Politics. He has been a part of the UNS since he joined university and since then he has had the immense pleasure of participating in many committees internally and externally. Sam has a deep love and appreciation for every aspect of MUN and international affairs and is incredibly excited to get to know all of you over the year as one of your training directors.

Kelsey Rhude

Jack of all trades, master at none of them. Born and raised in Belle River Ontario, Kelsey hails from the town of corn and windmills. Kelsey loves traveling, long walks on the beach and training sessions that will blow your mind. But more seriously, she is interested in political oppression, climate justice, water rights and especially women’s human rights. She is currently in the fourth year of her undergrad degree in Human Rights and Law with concentration in Transnational Law and Human Rights. Apart from the UNS, she coaches gymnastics and until recently, did competitive Irish dancing. Kelsey is just your friendly neighbourhood training director looking forward to a spectacular year of all things MUN.
