Our Vision For Tomorrow

With input from the campus community and beyond, Appalachian's 32-member University Planning and Priorities Council (UPPC) is leading the process for planning the strategic direction of Appalachian for the next five years.

The new strategic plan will guide Appalachian in its vision, mission, and service to the people of North Carolina under the guidance of the UNC's strategic plan for 2013-2018 titled "Our Time, Our Future: the UNC Compact with North Carolina".
