ARC Welcomes 150 Students to Appalachian Teaching Project Symposium in Washington, D.C.
On November 30 and December 1, 2018, ARC will host 150 students from 15 Appalachian based colleges and universities at the 18th annual Appalachian Teaching Project (ATP) Conference
in Washington, D.C. Supported by ARC and organized by the Center for Appalachian Studies and Services
at East Tennessee State University, ATP is an applied-research training program for college and graduate students to design community based economic development initiatives across the Appalachian Region. As a capstone to this work, students and their faculty sponsors present their work to other student delegations from ATP participating institutions, ARC leadership, and community leaders in a formal peer-to-peer symposium in Washington, D.C. Since the program began in 2001, over 2,250 college and graduate students from across the Region have participated in ATP. Read the press release
