The undergraduate Model European Union is an annual event that gives students a chance to learn about the workings of the European Union through preparation for and participation in a hands-on two day simulation. Model EU enhances students’ understanding of the issues and challenges facing the 28 member nations of the EU. Awards are given to the most effective delegations and best individual position papers.

This year's competition will host universities from across Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Illinois and will take place at the University of Pittsburgh-Greensburg campus.

The Model European Union is sponsored by the European Union Center of Excellence and European Studies Center.  Active participating institutions include Washington and Jefferson College, the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg, and University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.  Other participating institutions have included Bowling Green States University, Centenary College, East Stroudsburg University, Georgia Tech, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, John Carroll University, Kent State University, Slippery Rock University, Syracuse University, University of Oklahoma, University of Florida, and University of Washington.
