The Public Affairs Conference (PAC) is the oldest student-led conference in the U.S. With a few exceptions, the conference has occurred annually since its inception in 1939. Throughout the three-day conference, students and other attendees from a wide range of colleges and universities meet in workshops to discuss and propose solutions to current topics such as cyber crime, globalization, terrorism and genetics.
The 63rd annual PAC was titled "Peacebuilding: A New Approach to Conflict Resolution" and took place on March 22–24, 2012. Watch the video above to learn more about last year's conference.
The 64th annual PAC will be held March 28–30, 2013. It's entitled, "Youth Empowerment: Action! Not Apathy."
