Expectations for Faculty Adviser
*Prior experience with MUN is not necessary!
Short answer
: Whatever a school can manage.

While some schools may be able to accommodate large MUN teams, others do not have the personnel/time/space/dedication to maintain a large club.

Determine the number you feel comfortable working with and the time you can provide the students, and work with you school to figure out the best option for your space, availability and resources.

Number of Students Involved?
Meetings should be held
minimum
once to twice a week for consistency in preparation and learning the material, and to help the information remain with the students week to week.

How frequently you meet is based upon your
availability
, and the
resources
available to you and the students. Work with your schedule and your school to find the balance that works best for you and the students.
Frequency of Meetings?
