Calling all students interested in African Studies!

The New York Six Liberal Arts Consortium is collaborating with the African & Latin American Studies Program at Colgate University to host the 2nd annual

Regional Model African Union Simulation

October 21-23, 2016

@ Colgate University, Hamilton, NY


Join students and faculty from across the NY6 for this unique, 3-day event that will bring teams of 6 students and a faculty advisor from across the Consortium together.  Delegations are formed with three students who represent an African country in committee and council sessions (so a team of 6 would be made up of 2 country delegations).  Students consider issues of importance to the region and simulate responses to conflicts which may arise.  

This is a great opportunity for those interested in African Studies or those heritage students from the region to network and learn the rules and procedures of debate for an international organization.  

Meals and accommodations will be provided.  

**Teams must be formed by 9/23/2016.

*Update:  So far, we have teams from the following NY6 schools representing the following countries:
Colgate: Nigeria, Mali and Djibouti
Hamilton: South Africa, Kenya and Egypt
Hobart and William Smith: Zimbabwe and TBD
St. Lawrence: Botswana and Liberia
Skidmore: DRC and Rwanda
Union: Ethiopia and Ghana
