The Office of Student Life and Leadership sent five UNC students to the 2018 Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Student Leadership Symposium to represent the University this past month.
The five student delegates were Travis Broadhurst ('18), Raymundo Garcia, Jr. ('19), Vincent Lewis ('18), Amruth Sriperumbudur ('21), and Vaishnavi Vankayala ('20). 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 Duke University, where the theme was "Contentious Times: A Call for Courageous Leadership." Participants in this year’s symposium explored how to lead courageously and handle conflict during a time when our universities, communities, and politics are ripe with tension.
The 2019 ACC Leadership Symposium applications will open in Fall 2019 on the Student Life and Leadership HeelLife portal.
