The African Studies Program and the African Student Organization, with support from the Department of Africana Studies, Global Studies Center, World History Center, and Office for Admissions and Financial Aid (OAFA), are proud to announce the 4th Annual Model African Union for high school students! This unique experiences provides students in grades 9-12 the opportunity to research and represent a given African country's interest in Parliamentary-style proceedings!
We do not charge any fees for schools to participate, and are one of only a handful of high school African Union simulations in the country! Additionally, we provide a light breakfast and African lunch for all students. We also provide African entertainment during lunch.
With 9 schools and nearly 100 students having participated last year, this event continues to grow and evolve. Join us!
