The Security Council Simulation at Yale (SCSY) is the premier crisis-based Model United Nations conference on the college circuit. Since 1977, when the first SCSY took place with only two committees, this crisis-based conference has risen to fame thanks to its innovative take on major historical, fantastical, and current events.
SCSY takes place in early October on Yale's campus, attracting over 100 Yale students as staffers and hundreds of delegates from around the globe. The conference is known for its creative and unique committees—which have included The Salem Witch Trials: 1692, Paradise Lost: Angels versus Demons, and Battlestar Galactica—alongside more traditional committees such as the Security Council, the Arab League, and the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency. Past keynote speakers have included a former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, diplomats, a Senior Advisor to the U.N. Foundation, and other high-ranking professionals in the field of international relations.
The most recent iteration of SCSY celebrated the conference's 40th anniversary, drawing delegates from around the country and the world. Should you wish to request further information or learn more, the SCSY website can be found here.
