Diversity Lecture Series

The Diversity Lecture Series serves the Appalachian campus and surrounding communities by providing free opportunities to learn about a wide array of social issues and cultural topics through an interdisciplinary lens.

All programs are free of charge and open to the public! Parking is available free of charge in the new parking deck next to the library after 5:30 p.m. For more information about parking, contact ASU Parking and Traffic at (828)262-2878 or parking.appstate.edu. Please visit maps.appstate.edu to see a campus map highlighting available parking and areas where our events take place.

Depending on travel schedules, many of the speakers are eager to meet with classes, student, staff or faculty groups in addition to the scheduled evening presentation. 

Please email Jeff Cathey (catheyjd@appstate.edu) to request a class visit or to check out a DVD from the Multicultural Resource Library.

The 2017-2018 Forum Series is sponsored by Appalachian State University, University Forum Committee and University College with additional support from the Joan Askew Vail Endowment and the Office of Intercultural Student Affairs.
