SCSY IS A CRISIS SIMULATION CONFERENCE HAPPENING OCTOBER 13-16, 2016 THAT BRINGS TOGETHER COLLEGE STUDENTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD TO DEBATE MODERN ECONOMIC, POLITICAL AND SOCIAL CRISES IN A SEMINAR-STYLE POLICY-COUNCIL FORMAT. 

THE SCSY SECRETARIAT HAS GATHERED TOGETHER THE UNIVERSITY’S DIVERSE RANGE OF STUDENTS AND PROFESSORS TO PRODUCE A COLLECTION OF EXCITING SIMULATIONS. TOPICS RANGE FROM THE USSR PRESIDIUM 1953, TO KOREA 2055, TO RALPH LAUREN’S BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND EVEN TO GAME OF THRONES. THE COMMITTEES’ FAST-PACED CRISES AND INNOVATIVE USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA WILL IMMERSE DELEGATES IN THOUGHT-PROVOKING DELIBERATIONS.   

Uniquely SCSY

For the past 40 years, the Security Council Simulation at Yale has been the premiere crisis-based Model UN conference on the college circuit. SCSY combines innovative crisis committees, the extensive resources offered through our location on Yale’s campus, and unparalleled social events. In the course of four days, you will engage in fascinating debate, meet students from more than thirty national and international universities, and unwind at our lounge and club nights. We look forward to welcoming you to SCSY!

Dynamic Committees

Historic, traditional, innovative, fictional – the broad range of committees offered at SCSY makes us one of the most diverse conferences on the circuit. Whether you are negotiating drug trafficking in our El Cartel committee, fighting in the Ukraine Crisis of 2014-2015, or discussing Hip Hop and Politics, you will find yourself immersed in educational and professional simulations. Reaching far beyond the traditional bounds of Model UN, we draw upon the most passionate and talented members of Yale’s undergraduate community to offer committees in their respective fields of expertise.

Interactive Crises 

The interactive crisis committee experience forms the heart of SCSY. Unlike committees at other college conferences, every single one of our simulations is based on the crisis model in which delegates must respond to unforeseen fictional events. Articles, twitter blasts, breaking news videos, and real life visitors will introduce you to the complex issues in need of your problem-solving prowess. Our dedicated crisis staff works around the clock to respond to delegates’ decisions using creative multimedia capabilities. The fast-paced nature of our committees will push you to the limits of cooperation, adaptability, and creativity.

Social Events

After spending your day defusing diplomatic dilemmas or rebuilding a post-apocalyptic society, celebrate a job well done at SCSY’s famed social events. Relax, unwind and enjoy two nights of private parties!

Join us for Lounge night to socialize and meet your fellow delegates in a fun atmosphere. The next day, dance the night away with your fellow delegates at a nightclub rented out exclusively for the conference. We also plan to have a Career Fair with breakfast provided. Come meet potential employers and graduate school representatives to chat, question, and network!
