Walker College associate dean to speak during AACSB Assessment and Impact Conference

Walker College of Business Associate Dean of Undergraduate Programs and Administration, Dr. Sam Formby, will present at the AACSB Assessment and Impact Conference in Charleston, South Carolina on March 18, 2019.

Dr. Formby's session will focus on Impact You Can See, and it will offer best practices for structuring efforts and communication to assess institutional strengths, identify weaknesses, and inform strategic planning and operations. 

According to Kaye Lee, Associate of Conferences for AACSB, Dr. Formby was selected because "Appalachian State has grown undergraduate and graduate numbers, increased engagement with industry, and secured big funding/pledges that will be leveraged to increase engagement and impact."

Lee also noted that Appalachian impressed the AACSB Peer Review Team during their January 2018 visit. Appalachian's accreditation was extended by AACSB following that rigorous peer review process.
