Security Council Simulation at Yale

What is SCSY?

YIRA’s premier college Model UN conference, the Security Council Simulation at Yale (SCSY) brings undergraduate and graduate students from around the world to Yale’s campus in the fall for a weekend of intense debate and discussion. 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.

Unique Crises

The committee structure of SCSY is what makes it truly stand out. Every single committee at this conference is based around a crisis, fictional or real-life, which delegates must respond to over the course of the simulation. Past crises have included:

  • The Ukrainian Crisis of 2014-2015

  • The Salem Witch Trials

  • The Harry Potter Universe

The Chairs and Crisis Directors work meticulously to build an immersive and interactive world with tweet storms, real-time video updates and visitors. SCSY challenges delegates to think in innovative ways to tackle new and unpredictable challenges.

Social Life

SCSY makes your weekend worthwhile. From Club Night and Lounge Night to Karaoke Jam, SCSY'S events have received rave reviews from our delegates. Come to meet new colleagues both around the committee table and the dance floor.
