Three Centers, One Mission
The Multicultural Center (opens in a new tab) at Appalachian State University provides a bridge that connects and promotes the uniqueness of various multicultural groups. It encourages respect and appreciation of the history, traditions and culture of these diverse groups. We accomplish this by providing a venue for hosting exhibits, programs, activities and lectures that seek to enhance the rich cultures that comprise our collective community.
The Henderson Springs LGBT Center (opens in a new tab) is a resource, referral, and social outlet for the campus and surrounding community. The Center provides a safe, welcoming, supportive and inclusive space for all people regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. This center was founded to provide resources, support, information, and a welcoming atmosphere for LGBT individuals and their allies.
The Women's Center's (opens in a new tab) mission is to enhance awareness of the challenges facing women on this campus and in this society. They promote, support, and celebrate the diverse Appalachian State University women's community and strive to foster an environment that creates opportunities for the education, leadership development and personal growth of women, regardless of their background or beliefs. The Women's Center contributes to the App State community by offering its own programs and services, collaborating with all existing entities and by working to transform discriminatory institutional structures and practices.
