BELLARMUN 2023 is a two-day Model United Nations conference for middle-school students, hosted at Bellarmine Prep by Bellarmine's MUN program in April.

Dearest Delegates, Parents, and Advisors,

Welcome to BELLARMUN 2023!

My name is Maya Loveland-Hyland, and I am honored to serve as the Secretary-General of BELLARMUN 2023. Since the first iteration of BELLARMUN in 2017, the conference has been dedicated to teaching students about Model UN, while simultaneously fostering important debate and diplomacy skills. The welcoming and eye-opening experience I had at BELLARMUN five years ago has caused me to fall in love with the fast-paced debate and creative solutions that make Model UN unique. My goal is to bring that same transformative experience to all of you, and hopefully help you to foster a similar passion for global cooperation and debate.

The conference will be hosted at Bellarmine Preparatory School, and provide an educational and exciting Model UN experience to all interested middle school students. BELLARMUN 2023 will continue to teach new or returning students important skills such as research, public speaking, rules of procedure, and resolution writing. This iteration of BELLARMUN will offer four unique committees, and provide a plethora of relevant global issues for delegates to immerse themselves in.

BELLARMUN 2023 will be held in person on April 29th and 30th. All middle school students are encouraged to sign up, regardless of skill level or future high school.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at I look forward to welcoming you all to BELLARMUN 2023!
