About Us

The global goals

Welcome to the “Gen UN” Chapter for the Claremont Colleges. Gen UN campus chapters are ambassadors for the UN in their local communities. We educate ourselves and others in the vital work of the UN, advocate to our elected leaders about the importance of a strong US-UN relationship, and have fun while doing it!

GenUN is a national initiative of UNA-USA to engage and energize young supporters around UN issues. As an action-oriented platform, GenUN provides a vehicle for young people to get involved in global issues. GenUN also empowers a new generation of young Americans to be leaders in helping the UN build a better world for all.

UNA-USA’s campus chapters offer students an opportunity to lead and advocate in their communities, while the U.S. Youth Observer program provides a connection to the UN for youth.

We are passionate about being local leaders for the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and we invite you to join in! Please see our Upcoming Activities page as well as our blog posts for information on current topics and upcoming events.
