Equity in Action
Equity in Action (EIA) is a student-run conference at Appalachian geared toward educating all participants on issues and topics relating to diversity, equality, equity and social justice. In its fifth year, EIA aims to address topics that both directly and indirectly affect the lives of historically marginalized and underrepresented individuals.
About the Diversity Celebration
The Diversity Celebration features a wide array of local and international music, eclectic dancing, delectable food, and imaginative crafts. Appalachian students, faculty, staff, K-12 schools, and members of the local community are all invited to join us in this celebration of cultures through art and entertainment.
The Diversity Celebration supports and enhances Appalachian State University's mission of "accepting the responsibility to be actively involved in addressing the educational, economic, cultural, and societal needs of the changing region, state, nation, and world," by providing a venue where diverse perspectives, cultures and values are accepted, appreciated and celebrated.
