Our student alliance is action-oriented and encourages
globally-minded undergraduate students to be involved in global
humanitarian efforts. We seek to educate, inspire and
mobilize Americans and the U.S. government to support the
principles and vital work of the United Nations. As

strengthen America's global leadership through a renewed emphasis
on international cooperation, diplomacy and active participation at
the United Nations.

Our organizations’ contribution to the mission of St.
The United Nations Alliance - St. Johns University chapter is

through advocacy and community service. This chapter will
work to fortify the awareness of its members through hands on
