The Office of Student Life and Leadership sent five UNC students to the 2017 Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Student Leadership Symposium to represent the University this past weekend.
The five student delegates were Angum Check ('19), Miriam Chisholm ('20), Cameron Jernigan ('18), George Smith ('17), and Araseli Valverde ('19). The ACC Student Leadership Symposium brings together student leaders from each of the 15 ACC Colleges and Universities to build community, engage in discussion about global issues, and work collaboratively to create innovative initiatives that advance students' capacity of global leadership and citizenship.
Student leaders had 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 year, the Symposium was hosted at Wake Forest University, where the theme is "Wellbeing & Social Change: I Thrive, You Thrive, We Thrive." Participants in this year’s symposium explored how wellbeing and thriving can aid in facilitating lasting social change.
