2019 ACC Leadership Symposium Application is Now Available



The ACC Leadership Symposium is a leadership development program for student leaders and advisers.  This year’s theme is “Nourishing Our Communities: Uniting Against Hunger”. The event will be held at North Carolina State’s campus from February 22nd – 24th, 2019.


Participants will be asked to learn about the issue of food insecurity and initiatives that exist to address it. The curriculum will also encourage participants to consider their ability to contribute to the needed research, design innovative interventions, and create or adjust policies.


This is an important issue for all of our institutions, as research estimates that 36 % of university students and 42-56% of community college students were food insecure in the 30 days prior to being surveyed. Food insecurity is defined as “the limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods, or the ability to acquire such foods in a socially acceptable manner.”


All travel, accommodations and food will be provided to those selected.


While experience with food insecurity is appreciated, students interested in gaining more knowledge via attending the conference are welcome.


Applications are due by 5pm on November 7th. If you would like to apply to be a delegate for the 2019 ACC Leadership Symposium, download the application here and submit all application materials to –
