Model United Nations
At VSA, a lot of importance is given to social awareness and making sure that learning happens beyond the boundaries of a textbook. Since 2006, the Vidyashilp Academy and its students have been actively involved in hosting and taking part in a number of Model United Nations.
Since 2014, VSA has hosted their own Model United Nations in association with IMUN. The VSA MUN has received a lot of positive attention and had close to 200 participating students from various schools all over the country.
Our students have proved their mettle over and over again in MUNs all over the world. From Harvard in 2010 to Budapest in 2013 to China in 2014, VSA students have been awarded numerous times for their exemplary performances everywhere. In 2015, two of our students were even selected as vice chairs for the prestigious United Nations MUN.
MUN is an integral part of the schooling process in VSA. Along with our Shilp Encounter initiative, students are trained specifically for MUNs. The history department helps to train our students in subjects like foreign policy and international law and gives them a strong foundation to be prepared for any MUN that they participate in.
