SCSY IS A Collegiate model united nations CONFERENCE HAPPENING OCTOBER 24-27, 2019, bringing 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 climate refugees, TO the kashmir conflict, TO the soviet union AND EVEN TO the fyre festival. THE COMMITTEES’ FAST-PACED CRISES AND INNOVATIVE USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA WILL IMMERSE DELEGATES IN THOUGHT-PROVOKING DELIBERATIONS.   

Uniquely SCSY

For the past 41 years, the Specialized and Crisis Simulation at Yale (formerly known as 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. This year, we are thrilled to announce the addition of specialized committees to our conference for the purpose of further engaging debate beyond crises. 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 night. 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 alliances in the Non-Aligned Movement, mediating the status of Taiwan as a nation, or making power plays in Ancient Greece, 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. The majority of our simulations are based on the crisis model in which delegates must respond to unforeseen fictional events, though we also have some non-crisis committees to accommodate for all. 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 fun parties!

Join us for Lounge night on Friday to socialize and meet your fellow delegates in a fun atmosphere. The next day, dance the night away with your fellow delegates as well other Yale students at the various venues that Yale campus offers for night events. We also plan to have to host other great networking events and educational panels with the graduate community at Yale!
