Welcome

Welcome to the United Nations Association of Utah (UNAU) web site.

The United Nations Association of Utah formed shortly after the United Nations Charter was signed by Member Nations in San Francisco, California on October 24, 1945.

October 24, U.N. Day, is commemorated annually in partnership with a U.N. Day representative appointed by the State of Utahís Governorís Office.

Other annual events for UNAU include the High School Model United Nations tournament (hosted by the University of Utah), and fund raising activities for UNICEF and Adopt-A-Minefield.

We also take the opportunity to personally meet with our elected representatives, both state and national, to present our views on major, timely issues that could benefit the world body.

UNAU is part of the Mountain-Pacific Region of UNA-USA.


Monthly Meetings:

Well-informed speakers help us to expand our knowledge of the world and to understand more fully the problems and anxieties of those with whom we share this planet.

Meetings are held every fourth Tuesday, September through June, except December (winter break). Up to date speakers, both skilled and experienced, help us expand our knowledge of the world and to more fully understand some of the problems most member nations face.


Mission Statement:

In cities and towns nationwide, UNA-USA is determined to inform, inspire and mobilize Americans. Our vision is a world in which humanity is spared the scourge of war, human rights are honored, the natural environment is protected and the United States is a constructive member of the United Nations for the well-being of all nations.

  • to encourage multilateral approaches in dealing with global problems;

  • to build support for constructive national policies on global concerns;

  • to enhance the effectiveness of the United Nations in improving the quality of life for everyone;
