ACC Leadership Symposium

ACC: Atlantic Coast Conference Leadership Symposium, The Next Generation of Social Change


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.

Upcoming Conference

Breaking the Barrier: Creating an Intersectional Community
April 1-3, 2022
Host Campus: Syracuse University

With this theme we want to look at both physical and social barriers that make it hard to truly live out one's multiple identities while finding ways to connect that to the surrounding community of where our various institutions are located.

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. Apply by March 7 at 5 p.m. to be considered.
