Chancellor's messages

    Thank you, Acting Chair Ricks, and good afternoon!

    It's hard to believe it's nearly October already! It's been a very busy beginning to the semester, and I thank you all for the many events you have joined us for since the semester began just over a month ago.

    The first day of classes represents new beginnings for students, faculty and staff, and it's always full of promise and excitement.

    Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

    Budget news from Raleigh is once again, excellent for App State, and we extend our sincere thanks to our legislators for securing important appropriations specifically for our Boone and Hickory campuses, as well as key compensation increases for university employees.

    Good afternoon and welcome!

    Thank you to those who are joining us today in person, as well as to the faculty, staff and students who are joining via livestream from the Hickory campus.

    The annual State of the University Address is an important opportunity for us to come together as a university community as I share a review of some of the issues we are facing as an institution, along with key accomplishments and plans for the coming year.
