They explore how their experiences have helped them to expand their horizons and gain valuable life skills, all while contributing to the enrichment of McGill’s student life. So much learning happens outside of the classroom and the ACCE Team helps develop those opportunities for themselves and others.

My time at McGill University would not have been the same without the Emerging Leaders Program or the ACCE Team. The Emerging Leaders Program provided me with the opportunity to develop my leadership skills in tangible ways. Working alongside students from international and diverse backgrounds challenged me to consider leadership and campus/community engagement in exciting new ways, and provided a means for me to apply my skills and knowledge to enriching and valuable experiences.

The ACCE program showed me how to be a better leader...(i)t allowed me to more easily communicate with members on my team. Overall, this positively enriched my McGill experience as I was able to develop more meaningful relationships (Megha)
(The ACCE Team program) provides McGill students with a platform to get involved and meet new people. First year students are often unsure where or how to get involved and ACCE team is a great way to get started for them. (Mithura)
