We are the Oxford African and Caribbean Society (ACS), a student-run society at the University of Oxford.
Our diverse body of members consists of undergraduates to postgraduates, scientists to lawyers from nations all over Africa, the Caribbean and beyond. We are committed to exploring, promoting and celebrating African and Caribbean culture within Oxford University. We love meeting new people so feel free to drop by for a defining university experience.
To us, ACS represents family, unity and opportunity. We believe that our purpose is to become a productive force in order transform our communities.
Our philosophy is underpinned by our 3 ‘E’s: ENGAGE, ENHANCE, EMPOWER. However, particularly for this year, the bedrock of all our activities can be summarised by BUILD. We are committed to building robust structures and foundations to support our students, whether this is through providing a diverse range of career opportunities, or creating a forum which allows our members to use their different cultural backgrounds to express themselves. Our central ethos of ‘building’ is also applicable to our access initiatives. We are actively committed to helping the next generation of African Caribbean students make informed choices regarding their career and educational opportunities, and confidently leverage their specific talents to do so.
At Oxford ACS, the scope and diversity of our initiatives means that there is always something you can get stuck into! From spoken word to travelling to schools and engaging with younger stidents, we promise to continue to provide you with the opportunity to get involved in whatever capacity you desire. At the heart of ACS is a family. We promise to contnue to bring you the laughs and smiles that remind you why you can call Oxford ACS your home.
