 Chafin Cornwell is the Business Officer for the Office of International Education and Development. His major responsibilities include but are not limited to all departmental financial affairs; execution of all aspects of budget management from daily transaction processing to complex financial reports and database creation.

A native of Western North Carolina, Chafin graduated from Appalachian State in 2019 with a BS in Psychology with a concentration in Business. During his time at App State he also minored in Recreation Management. While he regrets never taking the opportunity to study abroad, he did get a taste of International travel by recently visiting Crete and is now eagerly planning his next trip out of the country. 

Chafin enjoys hiking, kayaking, fishing, and gardening. He is a huge sports fan and does his best to make it to as many live events as possible but also enjoys watching from his couch. He is also a big dog person and anytime you see him, you will probably also see him with a dog whether it be his own or when he is volunteering at the humane society.
