The Allegacy Center for Leadership and Character sponsors a variety of leader development opportunities for students including participating in Service Academies Leadership Conference Program and the Ethics & Leadership Debate Team.

Service Academies Leadership Conference Program

The ACLC is pleased to sponsor the Service Academies Leadership Conference Program.  In the program’s eighth year, the Allegacy Center for Leadership and Character supports up to 6 undergraduate business school students to attend leadership conferences at four service academies.

Recent conference offerings include:

  • US Air Force Academy – National Character & Leadership Symposium in Colorado

Interested undergraduate business school students interested in applying to attend should possess a passion regarding leadership and learning more about the subject; strong values, and the courage to exchange and defend ideas in a public forum of peer and senior leaders.  They will serve as ambassadors for WFU School of Business.

Testimonials from previous year’s student attendees can be found here.
