BOONE, N.C.—As part of their continuing tour of the University of North Carolina system’s 17 campuses, the five new members of the UNC Board of Governors spent Friday afternoon, Sept. 22, touring Appalachian State University.
Board members toured key areas of development for the university. Stops included the new Beaver College of Health Sciences building, the first Connect NC Bond-funded construction project underway; the old Watauga High School property, which the university has arranged to purchase from Watauga County; and the former site of the Broyhill Inn and Conference Center, which will house the university’s new Innovation Campus.
Students and faculty also shared research projects and key university initiatives promoting student employment, wellness, and community outreach and engagement.
The board members also visited UNC-Charlotte and Western Carolina University on this leg of their tour, Sept. 21-22.
