* Combined percentage of students who self-identify as Hispanic of any race; American Indian or Alaska Native; Black or African American; Asian; Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander, two or more races; or Foreign National. This percentage is taken from the total number of students who elect to report their racial and/or ethnic identities, as well as Foreign National students. Actual counts may be higher, as some students choose not to report their race or ethnicity.

Latest Message from the Chief Diversity Officer
This month, App State will honor veterans and other members of our military community during Heroes Week Nov. 3-10, 2023 Military Mountaineer Homecoming Nov. 3-4 and Veterans Day on Nov. 10. The Office of Diversity is committed to supporting this valued population of Mountaineers by helping them transition from military service to civilian life — or balance the two. In addition, November is National Native American Heritage Month, and there is a variety of programming planned for those who wish to participate.
Take a look back at App State in 1973, in 1998 and at Homecoming 2023November 1, 2023
