Engage with App State
Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to visit App State Engage for more opportunities to get involved — on and off campus.
The Diversity Celebration features a wide array of music, eclectic dancing, delectable food, international films and festivals. App State students, faculty, staff, K-12 schools and members of the local community are all invited to join in this celebration of cultures through art and entertainment.
In January 2020, App State presented its inaugural Inclusive Excellence Awards. These awards — which will be given annually — are designed to shine a light on individuals at App State and in the community whose work demonstrates their active, intentional and ongoing commitment to transformative change.
The ASCEND Program — formerly known as Linking Education and Diversity (L.E.A.D.) — is an engaging, intentional, high-impact supplemental orientation program targeting first-year App State students from marginalized and historically underrepresented backgrounds. ASCEND is based on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and establishes a solid foundation for new students to feel a sense of belonging and community, to be empowered to succeed with knowledge, connections and resources, and to explore and give back to their new home-away-from-home.
Since 2002, the Center has organized and held the annual Martin & Doris Rosen Summer Symposium “Remembering the Holocaust.” Named for symposium benefactors, the late Doris and Martin Rosen, the symposium endeavors to provide teachers with the most current research on the Holocaust, racism, and anti-Semitism in tandem with teaching strategies and plans needed by every educator to tackle this urgent topic in an informed and successful manner in a classroom setting.
