African and Caribbean Society

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.

Ultimately we, as a society, aim to showcase the beauty of African and Caribbean society at the university and the wider black community in Leeds. ACS provides a place of solidarity for black students at the university, alongside being an open space to meet like-minded individuals.
