Appalachian State University prepares students to lead purposeful lives as engaged global citizens who understand their responsibilities in creating a sustainable future for all. The transformational Appalachian experience promotes a spirit of inclusion that brings people together in inspiring ways to acquire and create knowledge, to grow holistically, to act with passion and determination, and embrace diversity and difference. Our interdisciplinary approach to inquiry-based learning begins with First Year Seminar and continues until graduation. From the moment you begin your Appalachian education, you’ll be expected to develop as a critical and creative thinker, an effective communicator, an inquisitive local-to-global learner and someone who understands and respects the responsibilities of community membership.At Appalachian, research, scholarship and the production or performance of creative work — such as teaching, service and the arts — are crucial to both our institution and the communities we serve. Our faculty, students and staff expand the boundaries of their academic disciplines, discover answers to real world questions, enhance the quality of life in the region and beyond, enrich the K-16 classroom experience and contribute to economic development.
