University Partners

Appalachian State University is honored to be in partnership with many external organizations. These creative relationships provide opportunities for our students, faculty and staff to engage in mutually beneficial service, research, educational, and economic development activities throughout the region, state, country and world.

We invite you to browse a few examples of these partnerships below. Please contact us if you have a question about a particular partnership.
