Wilberforce 2018

Welcome to Wilberforce

This year's Wilberforce Conference was held on Friday, November 2, 2018 amidst the beginning of UNC's Homecoming weekend. The main conference ran from 12:30 to 7:15 p.m. that day with two keynote addresses, three vocation-themed panels including an interactive workshop, an all-conference panel, and a celebratory banquet in the Great Hall of the FPG Student Union.  

Based on input from our student leaders and alumni steering committee, we selected Wisdom for the Road Ahead as the year’s conference theme. Please see the About section of this site to understand why, our mission and goals.

We hope you were able to join us and explore this topic together. If not, we would love to have you next year! Stay tuned for updates by joining our email list below. Until then, enjoy video and audio recordings from past years here and here. Media from the 2018 conference to come.


"I love what the Wilberforce Conference demonstrates to our community...that we’re here, we’re present, and we want to be engaged with the world."
