Model African Union
The International Model African Union (MOAU) conference is a simulation of the proceedings of the African Union, held at Howard University in Washington, DC, every year from Thursday through Sunday during the last week of February. The conference is designed for university and college students drawn from across the nation, with each school representing one of the fifty-four African countries.
All Penn State students are eligible for selection to participate in the National Model African Union conference. However, they must also be either majors or minors in the College of The Liberal Arts and must have taken at least one African Studies course, preferably AFR 110: Contemporary Africa or AFR 192: Modern African History, to acquaint themselves with the nature of the African society, its political structures, cultures and the African economy. They must also be ready to attend pre-conference meetings organized by the Faculty Advisor, Dr. Clemente Abrokwaa, beginning in the Fall semester each year until the departure time for the conference in late February.
