Harvard Model Congress is the largest congressional simulation conference in the world run entirely by undergraduates at Harvard College.

Founded in 1986, our nonprofit organization is dedicated to teaching and inspiring the leaders of tomorrow. With 37 committees and a 9:1 delegate to staffer ratio, we are able to support students throughout the conference as they tackle a diverse array of complex issues and engage in debates, caucuses, trials, press conferences, testimonies, and crises.

As HMC enters its 35th year, we are confident that it continues to be the nation’s premier conference as one of the most dynamic model congress simulations available to high school students. Learn more about our mission and history here.
