A Letter from the Secretary-General:

Esteemed delegates and faculty advisors,


My name is April Zhang, and I am thrilled to serve as the Secretary-General of UC Santa Barbara’s 13th Annual Collegiate Model United Nations Conference: SBIMUN XIII. On behalf of the UCSB MUN team and my Secretariat, it is with great pleasure that I invite you to our beautiful campus in Santa Barbara on November 17th-20th!


This year it is my goal to elevate environmental justice, indigenous rights, and minority voices. The conference will, as always, be an inclusive environment where we uplift one another, with no forms of bigotry tolerated. In addition, I hope to organize a sustainable conference, where we can reduce the waste produced over the weekend while enjoying fruitful and respectful debate.

As you all are already aware, we live in a time of uncertainty. But rest assured that our planning is taking these challenges into consideration, and it is my personal promise that we will keep you updated with any changes that happen to our conference. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team at


Our secretariat has been and will continue working tirelessly to provide you with the best experience possible this year, and I look forward to seeing every one of you in the Fall. It would be my absolute honor to welcome you to the birthplace of Earth Day and have such amazing and varied perspectives be a part of this extraordinary conference.




April Zhang
