Appalachian Teaching Project infographic

The Appalachian Teaching Project (ATP) is an applied research training program for Appalachian college students to design economic development initiatives for their communities. As part of ATP, students are enrolled in a for-credit academic course to design and lead research projects in Appalachian communities to address regional challenges.

As a finale for the coursework, students and their faculty sponsors travel to Washington, D.C., to present their work to other student delegations, ARC leadership, and community leaders at the Appalachian Teaching Project Capstone Symposium.
