Model African Union provides an academic simulation of the African
Union that aims to educate participants about current African events, diplomacy, and the African Union agenda.
Participants will role-play as delegates representing an African nation and will advocate for the represented
country's interest in a simulated session of a committee of the African Union, such as the Technical Committee on
Social Matters or the General Assembly. Participants will research a country, take on roles as delegates, investigate
intra-African issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop Pan-African solutions to problems facing the
continent. All students are welcome to join the UMBC delegation.
