    Very few Americans have a clear understanding of the European Union. Yet, in many respects, that organization is our most important international partner. Intercollegiate simulation of the EU decision-making process is one device to help correct that deficiency. The problem addressed by this paper is whether that enterprise is an effective, efficient, and practical means to achieve that end. The tentative answer, based on the ten-year experience of the New York Consortium for European Union Studies and Simulations and its predecessors, is a qualified "yes." Such simulations attract to the study of the EU a substantial number of college students and they provide a more vivid and deeper understanding of the EU than would a more conventional approach, but their costs are also substantially greater. Those costs may limit the appeal of the model EU and, thus, its potential as an educational tool.
