College of Health Sciences
Enhancing health and quality of life
The College of Health Sciences, the first new college at Appalachian in 40 years, was established to meet the high demand for well-qualified health care and to address the health and wellness needs of our citizens. The college houses 16 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, approximately 2,000 student majors, and 115 faculty and staff.
Successful development of the new college is focused around five strategic initiatives: developing quality people and quality programs; building public and private partnerships; creating a collaborative culture; enhancing facilities and technology, and providing transcultural opportunities for students and faculty.
Appalachian’s College of Health Sciences is poised to play a pivotal role in the health and economic development of our region and beyond.
External funding is vital to the success and development of new and existing programs for the College of Health Sciences. Building a new facility to house the college, providing scholarships for higher ability students, recruiting distinguished professors as mentors and research scientists, developing public and private partnerships, enhancing opportunities for students and faculty to study abroad and solidifying our presence at the N.C. Research Campus are all critical, unfunded needs that are paramount to moving our college to the next level of excellence.
We invite you to join us – your support is vital as we embark on this significant milestone for Appalachian State University.
