ACC Leadership Conference


2017 ACC Leadership Symposium

"Wellbeing & Social Change: I Thrive, You Thrive, We Thrive"

The Atlantic Coast Conference has long supported the efforts of its member institutions in developing student leaders - through athletics and campus life. Through the support of the ACC, each year five undergraduate student leaders (accompanied by a faculty/staff adviser) from each ACC university gather at a host university to study and teach, to swap and share both leadership strategies and knowledge regarding a specific social issue.

Student leaders from each of the 15 ACC Colleges and Universities will have the opportunity to learn through intensive engagement in educational sessions, keynote addresses, topical content exploration, simulations and experiential application.

This year, the ACC Leadership Symposium will be hosted at Wake Forest University from Friday, Feb. 24 through Sunday, Feb. 26.


Symposium Description:

Join us at Wake Forest University to learn about Sustained Student Activism for Social Change at the 2016 ACC Student Leadership Symposium. Wellbeing for Social Change at the 2017 ACC Student Leadership Symposium. This year’s symposium will focus on the idea of what it truly means to "THRIVE" on campus for transformation of campus and surrounding communities. Participants in this year’s symposium will explore how wellbeing and thriving can aid in facilitating lasting social change.


Expectations for selected student delegates are:

  • Represent Florida State University and uphold the policies, standards and values of our university
  • Attend mandatory training sessions prior to the symposium to prepare for the conference
  • Actively participate in the symposium and engage with other attendees
  • Implement and/or share what you learned from the symposium with the FSU community
