2013 ACC Leadership Symposium
The 2013 ACC Leadership Symposium is a three day leadership learning opportunity to engage student leaders across the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). Each year, five 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.
The 2013 conference theme centers on civic engagement and volunteerism. Over the course of the weekend, students will experience the many tiers of grassroots civic engagement. Participants will serve and interact with volunteers, reflect and debrief with volunteer managers, and hear the stories of organizational leaders. They will experience the process of civic engagement and leadership by identifying a community need, conceptualizing an approach to address this need, publicly proposing their action plan, and finally by debating the ideal course of engagement in a democratic forum.
The conference is scheduled for April 5 to 7, 2013 at Boston College. NOTE: Each school is allowed to bring five students and one adviser to the conference. Every ACC school conducts a different process so be sure to follow your school's application process before you register for the conference.
