The annual ACC Student Leadership Symposium is designed to develop a community of ACC undergraduate students who understand the relationship between global and local issues and work collaboratively to create innovative initiatives that advance students’ capacity of global leadership.  

Students from each of the 15 ACC schools will be grouped with peers from their fellow ACC schools for the duration of the conference.  Student leaders from current ACC colleges and universities will have the opportunity to engage in educational sessions, hear keynote addresses, explore topical content, and participate in experiential application through their group project collaboration and presentations.  

This conference aims to not only strengthen the education of student leaders, but also strengthen the ACC family as a whole. To be considered for symposium attendance, you must be an undergraduate student at Wake Forest and apply. If interested, please contact Dexter Sharp, (

“The symposium gave me a fantastic opportunity to see how like-minded student leaders and activists in other campus communities are tackling common concerns.  It showed me that I am not alone in my ideas about change and gave me detailed new perspectives for approaching them. ” Jay, 2016 Participant
