United Nations Association-USA Avila Chapter

United Nations Association - USA - Avila University Chapter

UNA-USA campus chapters are ambassadors for the UN in their local communities.  They educate themselves and others in the vital work of the UN and advocate to their elected leaders about the importance of a strong US-UN relationship.  This organization will inspire Avila students to identify and advocate for global issues (i.e., energy, climate, women’s issues, health, peace, security). Students will build leadership skills that will help them make a difference in the world.  They will learn how to meet with elected officials to talk about the issues that matter. Membership is open to all AU students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Students with the status of first year through graduate school with a GPA of 2.8 or higher are eligible to join.
