Founded in 2018 by a group of AUS students, AUS Model Congress is a non-profit organization under the Department of International Studies. Albeit a young organization, it has been growing at an exponential rate, aiming to enlighten youth about US politics.
AUS Model Congress dedicates its most notable yearly event to a grand simulation of the US Congress and its various committees, showcasing the driving body of the US federal government through a three-day conference. The conference provides delegates the opportunity to represent senators and house representatives. The organization’s objective is to provide a platform that allows university and high-school students to understand how politics around the world function and how it affects their daily life.
This conference offers a great learning opportunity for both delegates and organizers through a fun and interactive way. Delegates are able to gain knowledge about American and international politics and how it affects them, while simultaneously improving their research, debating and public speaking skills. Organizers gain first-hand experience in the organization, management and teamwork necessary to successfully host a large-scale event.
The AUS Model Congress community has been continually growing ever since our first conference, which took place in 2018 and hosted a modest number of delegates. Since then, the number of delegates has grown significantly, due to the support and trust we have received from students all around the UAE and the Gulf. We are proud to bring such an innovative and exciting conference to the region.
Besides the conference, the AUS Model Congress team is extremely enthusiastic about hosting a multitude of exciting events. We look forward to welcoming you to our community!
