With delegations from each of the 15 Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) colleges and universities in attendance, 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 participating university 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 symposium always takes place in late February of the spring application.
Carolina United is a 4-day summer program that takes place the week before classes start in August. The purpose of the program is to create a safe environment for students to candidly discuss issues of diversity and multiculturalism, and some of the issues that inhere in society. Carolina United also addresses the broader definitions of diversity–the “diversity of viewpoints,” determined by students’ unique experiences, personalities, and perspectives.
