ACC Leadership Symposium

Banner image: 2024 Acc Leadership Symposium: Pivot with Purpose

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.

Upcoming Conference

Pivot with Purpose
Feb. 16-18
Host campus: University of Virginia

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.

To attend the ACC Leadership Symposium as an FSU delegate, students must apply and be selected. The application includes short essay prompts, so early applications are encouraged.

Applications are currently closed. The application window typically opens in the fall for the spring conference.
