Chancellor Everts’ priorities for moving forward as a campus community include:

  • improving wellness, health and safety for our campus community;
  • integrating global learning into and beyond our classrooms;
  • supporting faculty and staff;
  • providing innovative and creative opportunities for our students to engage in and showcase their research;
  • emphasizing the significance of the difference we can make in communities here and across the world through civic engagement;
  • securing the necessary resources to energize and sustain these strategic initiatives and support our world-class faculty, staff and students; and
  • maintaining a focus on slow and steady enrollment growth.

A Rigorous Student Experience

At Appalachian, student learning and student success come from a challenging academic curriculum, active classroom environments and close collaboration between faculty members and students on scholarly activities. A strong emphasis on undergraduate research, international experiences, interdisciplinary connections and measurable learning outcomes that assess student progress are at the core of Appalachian’s academic activities.

    Good morning and welcome to a very exciting weekend on App State’s Boone campus!

    Sunday night, I returned from College Station, Texas, after our football team won a tremendously important game for App State, beating Texas A&M, who was, at the time, ranked sixth in the nation. This week, College GameDay, ESPN’s popular college football pregame show, is broadcasting from App State’s campus for the very first time.
