The Model African Union offers students the opportunity to participate in teams and conduct research on political issues in assigned nations and then represent those nations in a model African Union role-playing exercise in Washington, D.C. Focuses on intra-African relations and the roles of Africans in international affairs, emphasizing the new African Union (AU) that replaced the Organization of African Unity (OAU).
The Model AU examines the Pan-Africanist origins, challenges, and achievements of the African Union.
This model offers students a unique opportunity to develop and hone their oral and written presentation skills and learn about real life international diplomacy. They earn course credits toward graduation.
