ARC is seeking proposals from colleges and universities across the Appalachian Region to participate in the Appalachian Teaching Project (ATP). As part of ATP, each participating institution offers at least one for-credit course in which students address the question of how to support community economic development to help build a sustainable future in Appalachia.
ATP engages students from up to 16 colleges and universities in place-based learning experiences in which they practice community economic development firsthand. Following completion of their community-based research project, ATP provides a forum in which students share their work with their peers, ARC administration and staff, and invited guests including community partners and university administrators.
Proposals are due by 5:00 p.m. ET on April 9, 2021 and should be submitted to ATP@arc.gov. For more information, visit arc.gov/atp
