Dear Delegates:


Welcome to Harvard Model Congress San Francisco 2022! 


We cannot wait to welcome you to Senate Environment and Public Works. The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee is responsible for legislation and oversight dealing with issues like environmental policy and government regulation of and investment in various forms of infrastructure. This year, we will be discussing transportation infrastructure. With implications for the environment, the economy, and societal safety and equity, issues regarding transportation infrastructure are often sites of community interest and impassioned debate.


This year your chairs are Emily Salem & Hilary Adeleke. Here’s a little more about us!


My name is Emily, and I am a sophomore from Woodstock, New York studying Anthropology. This is my second year staffing HMC, and I can’t wait to meet you all! Outside of HMC, I tutor and teach fifth-grade Civics. I like to bike, learn about history, play tennis, and watch Hulu (not Netflix) original series. Please reach out with any questions or just to introduce yourself!


Hilary is a sophomore at the College studying History & Science with a potential secondary in Government. Hilary is also a mentor for the AVS Leadership Academy and is active in Harvard Nigerian Students Association + Harvard Undergraduate Black Health Advocates. She is passionate about public and global health, especially concerning underserved communities. In her spare time, she enjoys watching Nigerian movies and anime, hanging out with family and friends, and reading. I would love it if you reached out to introduce yourself (send anime recommendations as well)! 


As we get closer to the conference, be on the lookout for emails about a pre-conference assignment. This will give us a great opportunity to give you feedback on skills you’ll need at the conference before we all come together in San Francisco. If you have any questions before the conference, please feel free to reach out to the Director of Congressional Programming, Matt Tibbitts, at We can’t wait to meet you!


Best wishes,

Emily and Hilary
