BOONE, N.C. — In summer 2018, two groups of Appalachian State University students traveled through Peru participating in climate change research and sharing sustainable energy practices with local residents.
Their study abroad courses — “Climate Change, Glaciers, and Water Resources” led by Dr. Baker Perry in the Department of Geography and Planning, and “Appropriate Technology in Peru” led by Dr. Jeremy Ferrell in the Department of Sustainable Technology and the Built Environment — were among 60 faculty-led programs offered by Appalachian in 2017–18 to expand students’ global competency while enhancing their academic experience.
