What we’re all about
The University of Leeds African-Caribbean Society (ACS) is a society bounded by the celebration and education of African and Caribbean culture; a home away from home and a pathway to cultural enlightenment.
Our mission is to make our members more professionally and socially aware of themselves. We aim to challenge stereotypes and break boundaries for our members and this begins with internal evaluations of ourselves through debates and culturally relevant talks and events. ACS is the place for fun, growth, and family.
This year we will be running a vast array of social and career events, speakers’ events, community projects, ACS ball, sports tournaments, editorial productions and many more. There is something in it for everyone. We will also be working more closely with the Careers centre and other faculties this year to organise more academic and career-related events (CV, cover letter help etc.) for our members.
