Appalachian Global Symposium

Event date(s): 
Monday, November 18, 2013 - Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Appalachian State University is hosting the second annual Appalachian Global Symposium, held each November during the nationwide International Education Week. Please put these dates on your calendar.


The Appalachian Global Symposium is one of the approaches that supports the University’s Quality Enhancement Plan of "Global Learning: A World of Opportunities for Appalachian Students."


The Symposium highlights global activities engaged in by faculty, staff, and students.  Symposium presenters will be discussing a variety of topics including science, technology, business, education, music and politics.

Symposium sessions offer opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to present their recent international experiences (research, education abroad, teaching, or service learning, or internships) on a professional platform, simultaneously expanding the campus community’s knowledge of the dimensions of internationalization occurring at Appalachian.
