UN Class Trips & Visits

We are no longer accepting applications for class trips to the United Nations for the spring 2016 semester.

Organizing a United Nations class trip is the perfect way to educate students about real world global issues. Planned trips serve to develop and facilitate activities that engage faculty, staff, and students around topics of pressing global concern. Visiting the UN Headquarters will provide a platform to connect curriculum to real world experiences and issues addressed by the United Nations. Planned visits can include UN guided tours, UN briefings, and meetings at permanent missions. Class trips can be organized in half or full day schedules. Please refer to the steps and resources provided below to coordinate a UN class trip or a UN non-class trip.


A Rutgers University faculty member must facilitate all United Nations class trips. If you are interested in arranging a class trip please follow the procedures below.
