The University of Manchester African and Caribbean Society (ACS) is a student-led organisation, that aims to create a platform that celebrates our expansive culture and to encourage growth and unity in a welcoming environment. Our aims for this year are focused around our ethos: 'Enhance. Engage. Empower'. This encompasses the cultivation of strong interpersonal relationships amongst members; the enhancement of cultural awareness and the development of key leadership and teamwork skills. In 2019/20, we hope to further embrace the diversity within our community, using this as the driving force to make our ACS rise together.
- Creating valuable networks for our members.
- Involvement outside of Manchester.
- Informing members with the issues pertinent to our community.
- Providing fun and relaxing social events.
- Creating a mentor system.
- Collaborating with societies within our university.
These three aims are combined with our intention to establish an interactive discussion-based podcast. Its interactive nature stimulates a strong analytical and inquisitive attitude towards current affairs. Overall, this creates a platform to continue to strengthen the links with our society members; extends our scope of influence, impacting the surrounding community and beyond and encourages social cohesion across the student body.
