Several Morgan State students attended the annual HBCU Policy Briefing last Friday in Washington D.C. The briefing, organized by the U.S. Department of State, hosted more than 300 students from HBCUs throughout the nation, and provided the group with updates on diplomacy and foreign affairs efforts in China, the Middle East and North Africa.
The program allowed students opportunities at group and individual meetings with key officials in the State Department, including directors and assistant secretaries working in human rights, public affairs and global health.
“Morgan is a very diverse school, with different students from difference places around the world. It helped me develop my interests and diversify my interests, as our professors are from different places and it opened my mind to different ideas and philosophies,” said Komi Agbemapele, a second-year master’s student in MSU’s International Studies program. ”At Morgan, I’m learning things in theory. Being at this conference allows me to meet foreign affairs officers, see them, see their body language when they are speaking with us. It helps us to see ourselves doing what they are doing.”
