Code of Conduct
Our intention is to create an environment at Future We Want Model United Nations (FWWMUN) that supports our educational mission. Professionalism in speech, actions, and appearance by all participants (Delegates, Head Delegates, Faculty, Delegation Leaders, Observers, Secretariat, and Staff) is a requirement of all FWWMUN conferences. These guidelines are provided to help establish clear expectations.
Disrespectful behaviors in Committee should first be addressed by attendees directly with one another or through their Faculty Advisor or Head Delegate. Repeated instances of undiplomatic behavior may be called to the attention of organizers by Faculty Advisors or Head Delegates through Information Services. Larger concerns, such as sexual harassment or discrimination issues, may be referred to conference organizers. Any instances of sexual violence should minimally be referred to conference organizers. Organizers may be contacted through Volunteer Staff in Committee or directly through Information Services.
FWWMUN reserves the right to ban violators from further participation and/or restrict future registration for any participant or school unable to uphold their responsibility to the conference’s expectations.
Treat everyone, including non-FWWMUN hotel guests, with the highest level of courtesy and respect at all times, including on social media and in electronic communications.
Enjoy the variety of activities available at our conference venues. Please bear in mind, however, that the purpose of being here is participation in FWWMUN.
Disruption of Committee sessions or causing problems in the hotel or other facilities will not be tolerated.
Respect academic integrity; plagiarism will not be tolerated.
Alcohol is not allowed in any of our Committee sessions. If you are going to drink, please drink responsibly. Excessive alcohol consumption should be avoided. Please refer to Hosting Country's Policy with respect to alcohol consumption.
Possession or use of illicit drugs is prohibited at all times. Any issues related to illicit drugs may be directed to the attention of local authorities.
Follow the Dress Code while attending conference events.
Respect the property of the United Nations, our host hotels, and any other facilities used. Keep in mind that our facility partners have separate policies that include the potential for removal from their properties.
Remain in character by consistently advocating the interests and representing the policies of the country assigned. To act in character also entails displaying respect for the opinions and ideas of fellow delegates, even if these opinions and ideas conflict with a given delegate’s own country's priorities.
Collaborate with fellow delegates whenever possible.
If assigned to a Committee, follow the Code of Conduct. If serving solely in an Advisory role, follow the Faculty expectations.
Attend and participate in any Head Delegates meetings.
Make efforts to ensure that students maintain a positive and professional approach to the conference and help them understand the skills of diplomacy as practiced at FWWMUN.
Serve as information resources when appropriate, but do not participate in the actual writing of resolutions or caucusing activities; participation in the committee process must be left to the student Delegates and the conference volunteer staff.
Quietly observe your students from the back of Committee rooms.
Refrain from using academic credit and grading policies that force participation beyond a country’s normal position in the UN; awards should not be a delegation’s main emphasis.
Attend and participate in any Faculty Advisors meetings (if applicable).
Observers are required to adhere to the same expectations as all other conference attendees.
Observers may not be enrolled university students or Faculty Advisors and do not provide any support to a delegation. An Observer is typically a school official, spouse/partner/child of a Faculty Advisor, or a funder who is interested in learning about FWWMUN.
Undiplomatic Behavior, Sexual Harassment, Discrimination, and Sexual Violence
Disrespectful behaviors in committee should first be addressed by attendees directly with one another or through their Faculty Advisor or Head Delegate. Repeated instances of undiplomatic behavior may be called to the attention of organizers by Faculty Advisors or Head Delegates through Information Services.
Sexual harassment and discrimination based on race, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, age, or disability are not acceptable. Such acts are incompatible with FWWMUN’s educational mission and are a violation of our Code of Conduct. General descriptions of behavior that may be considered sexual harassment can be found in the UN’s Code of Conduct.
Anyone who believes they have seen or encountered sexual harassment or discrimination should bring it to FWWMUN’s attention. We will investigate the merits of the allegations and respond appropriately. Outcomes may include issuing a verbal reprimand, expelling violators from the conference without compensation, banning violators from future FWWMUN involvement, or any other action deemed appropriate.
Sexual violence, which includes rape and sexual assault, is a crime in FWWMUN hosting countries punishable under the criminal justice system. Anyone who believes they are the victim of sexual violence, are at risk of experiencing sexual violence, or have witnessed actual or attempted sexual violence should contact law enforcement and notify FWWMUN. We will notify the appropriate authorities, if not already contacted. To ensure the safety of all FWWMUN participants, we will immediately remove potential violators from the conference and may take further action. We encourage all participants to review their campus sexual violence handbook for further information on sexual violence and resources available for victims.
All clothing must portray professionalism as expected in diplomatic settings. If attire is deemed inappropriate by FWWMUN staff, individuals may be asked to leave the session and return with appropriate attire.
Professional business attire is a business jacket, dress shirt, tie, slacks/skirt/dress, and dress shoes. Professional dress expectations require that dresses and skirts be knee length. Delegates should be dressed in professional business attire that reflects their self-identified gender.
Clothing considered too casual includes sweaters, novelty jackets, shorts, sundresses/other casual dresses, ball caps, jeans, sneakers, athletic wear, and sunglasses. Clothing that exposes excessive bare skin, shows undergarments, or is otherwise revealing is inappropriate.
It is not appropriate to display any school or national symbols such as flags, pins, crests, etc. on your person during sessions. All UN and FWW symbols are acceptable.
Traditional dress is permitted only for delegations in whose home countries it is considered professional business dress. FWWMUN will not tolerate any attempt to portray a character using traditional cultural attire as a costume.
Faculty Advisors, Delegation Leaders, Observers, and volunteer staff serve as role models for delegates. They too are required to dress in professional business attire while participating in scheduled conference sessions.
Safety and Security
Your safety and security are your personal responsibility. Take full advantage of this unique opportunity in a responsible manner. Please do not leave your computer or other personal electronic devices unattended. Remove conference badges when leaving the hotel. Refrain from any sort of substance abuse. Use common sense.
In the event of an emergency in the hotel or UN, follow their guidelines. Emergency preparedness experts recommend having a designated meeting spot outside the hotel and sharing cell phone numbers amongst members of your Delegation.
