Held annually in Washington, DC, the National University Model Arab League (NUMAL) celebrates its 34th year in 2017.  Started as an informal demonstration simulation at Georgetown University in 1983, the NUMAL has grown to host over 350 students from approximately 25 colleges and universities annually. Delegates train year-round through mock simulations, course-structured research, and participation in regional MAL conferences to prepare for this highly competitive international simulation.

Due to high demand, the National University MAL conference is by invitation only; to be added to the National University MAL wait-list, contact NCUSAR at 202-293-6466 or zach@ncusar.org.

Hotel Information

The 2017 National University Model will convene at the Georgetown University Hotel and Conference Center (3800 Reservoir Rd NW, Washington, DC 20057).

We ask that you emphasize to your students that though they may not be on their own campuses, their behavior should conform to the standards dictated by the policies of their respective institutions.
