The annual Model African Union class (POLI 266) gives students a remarkable opportunity for engaged, high impact learning.  Working in delegations of up to six, students hone research skills as they develop deep knowledge of specific African countries.  They also acquire skills in parliamentary procedure.  The class culminates with the participation in the Model AU meeting in Washington, D.C. Participants interact with a wide range of other students from other colleges and universities.  They also visit the embassies of the African countries they are representing, and have a chance to explore the nation’s capital.

College of Charleston represented delegations from the Republic of Congo and Sudan.  Brennan Baylis, Emily Davidson and Claire Scott each won a Best Delegation in Committee Award.  Claire Scott also received the Committee Leadership Award for her role on the Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance Committee.
