In September, 2017, Chancellor Sheri Everts and UNC System President Margaret Spellings signed a performance agreement to meet specific 5-year goals, as set by the UNC Strategic Plan. Under this agreement, Appalachian will focus on increasing enrollment and achievement for low-income and rural students, as well as in critical workforce programs such as health care, STEM and teacher education.
These initiatives are ambitious, but achievable for Appalachian. They are consistent with our founders’ mission to increase access to education for those students who otherwise would not have the opportunity to achieve a college education.
