Model United Nations

The Old Dominion University Model United Nations Society is ODU's window on the United Nations and international activism. The Society's mission is promoting global, multicultural education and leadership experience through experiential learning, stressing student participation in simulation conferences and academic courses. We represent the university at model U.N., European Union, Nato and crisis simulation conferences around the country, and by organizing major simulations of our own, including U.N. Day in October and ODUMUNC, held every February. Membership is open to students from all colleges and disciplines at the university.

Civil Military Fusion Center

The Civil-Military Fusion Center and Civil-Military Overview (CFC/CMO) is an office under the control of NATO's Allied Command Transformation headquarters, which manages the flow of information between the military and civilian arenas during complex crises in an attempt to reduce any communication conflicts for first responders. The division chose to locate in Innovation Research Park at ODU to foster collaboration with students in ODU's Graduate Program in International Studies; further building upon the decade-long relationship between the University and NATO.
