The “Innovate for Good” initiative in the Walker College of Business at Appalachian State University aims to promote interdisciplinary and collaborative activities to arrive at innovative solutions to address social problems.  The primary goal of the  initiative is to increase diverse students’ awareness about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education and career paths. In addition, there will be research projects that investigate pedagogical and practice themes that help advance under-represented groups in STEM education and workforce. 

Registration for 2019 will open in January!  More information to be posted soon, any questions can be emailed to



Innovate for Good offers opportunities for primary and secondary-aged students as well as those in collegiate environments. Computers and information technology affect business, manufacturing, health care, sports, entertainment and tourism, and virtually every other field.
