EDUCATING NORTH CAROLINA’S CITIZENS AND LEADERS
ow in its 109th year, Appalachian State
University is dedicated to creating the
best possible learning environment for
its students. The university promotes international experiences for students and faculty through
study abroad and international programs. Appalachian encourages intellectual growth through
the First Year Seminar and Summer Reading
Program and through undergraduate research
coordinated by faculty in many disciplines.
The university recruits and develops outstanding faculty committed to classroom instruction, research and service. It provides student
leadership opportunities through involvement
on university committees and the student government association or in one of the more than
200 clubs and organizations on campus.
Appalachian also fosters a commitment to
community service and outreach through volunteer activities coordinated throughout Watauga
County and the region. Appalachian offers more
than 140 undergraduate and graduate degree
programs and a doctorate of education.

CHANCELLOR DR. KENNETH E. PEACOCK
A
member of the Appalachian State University community the past 22 years, Dr. Kenneth E.
Peacock begins his fifth year as ASU’s sixth Chancellor in 2008-09.
Dr. Peacock, who served as the University’s Interim Provost and Vice Chancellor for
Academic Affairs during the 2003-04 academic year and was the Dean of Appalachian’s Walker
College of Business from 1992-2003, assumed the office of Chancellor on July 1, 2004.
During his 11-year tenure as Dean, Dr. Peacock introduced numerous initiatives that enhanced

ing a financial commitment from prominent businesswoman and civic leader Thelma C. Raley to
name the building that currently houses the Walker College of Business and endowing a lecture series
in honor of former State Treasurer Harlan E. Boyles.
Dr. Peacock also developed an international program in partnership with Fudan University in
Shanghai, China, to help students understand the challenges and opportunities of doing business in
Asia. As the Walker College of Business Dean, he also established the Dean’s Council of Student Advisors and a Business Advisory Council,
composed of 25 business leaders who meet once a semester to review programs and to anticipate the needs of the College.
He guided the college to reaffirmation of accreditation by the Association to Advance College Schools of Business (AACSB International) in April, 1998. The AACSB’s Visitation Team awarded ASU’s Walker College of Business nine commendations of strengths and
innovations during the reaffirmation.
Chancellor Peacock arrived at Appalachian in 1983 as a faculty member in the Walker College of Business and began teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in accounting and taxation. He was promoted to Assistant Dean in 1987 and Associate Dean in 1989,
before assuming the role of Dean in 1992.
Prior to his arrival in Boone, he was a faculty member at the University of Virginia, from 1980-83, where he taught, primarily, taxation
classes and served as faculty advisor for many student
organizations. He also co-authored an Instructor’s

BOONE, NORTH CAROLINA
t an elevation of 3,333 feet in the magnificent Blue Ridge Mountains, the Town of
Boone was incorporated in 1872. Named after the hunter and explorer, Daniel Boone,
who first spent time in the region in the 1760s, Boone lies nestled in a small valley in
the heart of the southern Appalachians.
Appalachian State University predecessor, Watauga Academy, opened its doors to 53
students in 1899. Its mission was to educate the mountain children and ultimately to prepare
teachers for service throughout western North Carolina when it became Appalachian State
Teachers College in 1929. It became one of the UNC System campuses in 1971.
Boone and Appalachian grew up together in the secluded wilderness, with few roads and
no railroad linking them to the communities that lay in pockets below. This relative isolation allowed both town and school to develop
strong character through overcoming adversity and created a unique heritage for both.
Consistently ranked as one of the “Best Small Towns in America,” Boone is now a bustling university town and the center of tourism
and commerce for Watauga County and the surrounding High Country. Outdoor activities, cultural events, fine dining and unique shopping bring visitors from all over the world to experience the friendly, welcoming face of this mountain town.
Tourism is the No. 1 economic driver and Boone enjoys one of the lowest unemployment rates in the Southeast. Boone is a yearround playground popular for business meetings, conferences and conventions. Also a favorite destination for leisure travelers, Boone attracts families for a weekend get-away or an extended visit to enjoy four beautiful seasons of scenery. Many visitors cite a favorite season,
but the cool summers, dazzling colors of fall and serene winters offer something for every nature lover.
An unusually wide array of arts and cultural programming in Boone also make it a favorite visit for art lovers and students of the arts.
Every July, Appalachian hosts An Appalachian Summer Festival, a month-long celebration of the performing and visual arts, which brings
such notable artists to the campus as Lily Tomlin, Branford Marsalis, Paul Taylor Dance Company, London City Opera and the Glenn Miller
Orchestra. And in the fall, the Performing Arts Series presents an exciting array of events every October through March with performers
such as Garrison Keillor and the National Symphony Orchestra.
The jewel of Main Street is the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts, the finest visual arts facility in four states, with six gallery spaces and
a robust community education and outreach program. The center recently opened a new wing and received a prestigious Andy Warhol
grant for outstanding programming.
Boone is a place that actually offers all the qualities most communities claim to offer. It’s a great place to work, a safe place to raise a
family and an ideal place to retire. That’s why many visitors have come for a weekend and stayed for a lifetime.
