Appalachian State University’s five-year Quality Enhancement Plan topic is called “Global Learning: A World of Opportunities for Appalachian Students.” 

We are committed to introducing students to different cultures and teaching them how to live and interact in a global society.  We help students explore the world – in multiple and varied ways.

QEP Goals

  • Goal 1: Develop globally competent knowledge
  • Goal 2: Cultivate intercultural competencies (i.e, increase student's ability to work effectively with others who are different from them)
  • Goal 3: Foster globally competent citizenship

The Fall/Winter 2012 issue of Appalachian Today highlights the QEP and devotes 40 pages to photos and stories about Appalachian's existing international activities. Read more
