What is KOMUN?

KOMUN is Kingswood Oxford’s Model UN for Middle Schools. This regional event introduces students in grades 6, 7, and 8 to global problems and challenges them to work collaboratively to solve them. Model UN gives students the opportunity to hone their public speaking and debate skills, while they use their expertise to build coalitions and pass resolutions. Since its founding in 2013 by KO History teacher Stacey Savin, 800 students from over 20 schools across the state have attended this unique conference.
The conference will be held on Sunday, March 7, 2021. It will run from 10:00 am to noon, with an hour break for lunch, then resume at 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm, with an awards ceremony.

Although the delegates will be virtual, on Zoom, the chairs will be working together in person on campus at Kingswood Oxford School in West Hartford, CT.  Classrooms are equipped with special cameras that show the entire room, as well as the Zoom shots of the delegates.

Since its founding in March 2012, KOMUN has attracted hundreds of students and their teachers from a wide range of public, private, charter, magnet and parochial schools throughout CT.
