Help us graduate globally conscious citizens
Private support is vital for Appalachian State University to achieve its vision of being an institution of national and international repute that incorporates global content into its curriculum, co-curriculum, research and service to enhance the relevance of its educational programs in an interdependent world, resulting in graduates who are knowledgeable and responsible global citizens and leaders.
Private support opens doors of opportunity for U.S. students to participate in education abroad, for international students to study at Appalachian and for Appalachian faculty initiatives that pay dividends in North Carolina, the nation, and around the world.
