Founders Plaza dedication and ribbon-cutting

Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - 2:00pm

Founders Plaza (Main university entrance / Hardin St.)

Appalachian State University will hold a dedication and ribbon-cutting for its new Founders Plaza. The event will feature musical performances by Hayes School of Music students and refreshments will be served. The public is invited to attend.

The refigured space will provide a new outdoor setting for studying, small gatherings and scheduled campus events, as well as a prominent home for the university’s sculpture of B.B. Dougherty.

The existing Appalachian State University sign, a favored backdrop for photographs, will be relocated on the site with minor updates to its design.

This Founders Day tradition will be celebrated each fall to honor Appalachian’s founders — B.B. and D.D. Dougherty and Lillie Shull Dougherty — and the first day of classes at Appalachian in 1899.

29th Annual Walk for Awareness

Tuesday, September 4, 2018 - 9:00pm

Begins at the Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts

The Walk for Awareness is a silent walk through campus to commemorate lives lost to violence in our community, to support victims and survivors of violence and to affirm our commitment and responsibility to speak out against violence in all its forms.

After remarks from J.J. Brown, vice chancellor of student affairs, and other campus leadership, participants will leave the Schaefer Center and walk silently to Sanford Mall. At Sanford Mall there will be music, a presentation by speaker Dr. Martha McCaughey and closing remarks by Dr. April Baer to send participants out with the charge that they all actively engage in creating a violence-free community.

The history of the Walk for Awareness has similar threads to this year's common read, “The Laramie Project.” Both were small college communities that experienced loss through acts of violence and had to overcome adversity.

Dr. Damon A. Williams on Inclusive Excellence
