May 2013 College of Health Sciences Commencement
Making a difference in the world...one student at a time.
Appalachian’s pioneering vision to change lives and change the world is bolder than ever. True to our Mountaineer spirit, we view the 21st century challenges facing our state, nation and world as a call to action. To meet this call, Appalachian graduates will leave our campus transformed and prepared to be critical and creative thinkers, leaders, responsible global citizens, and people who make real and powerful differences in their communities and beyond.
To preserve and enhance the Appalachian Experience, we have embarked on a comprehensive $200 million campaign. These funds will strengthen the Academics, Arts and Athletics experience for students, faculty and staff through scholarships, programs and facilities. Within these three priorities five areas of emphasis have great potential to positively impact the Appalachian Experience: scholarship, world focus, sustainability, entreneurship and health and quality of life.
The College of Health Sciences is charged with enhancing lives and communities. Appalachian has always looked toward identifying the needs of those around us, and preparing students who can meet those needs. A strengthened focus on the health sciences joins many other areas to meet the challenge of making stronger and healthier communities. Your help is needed as we begin the journey towards the goal of $20 million for the College of Health Sciences.
“It is imperative that Every Mountaineer move now to claim a bold vision for Appalachian. This is our university. We are changing lives and changing the world.”
—Chancellor Kenneth E. Peacock
