About the Appalachian Institute

The Institute’s mission is to work toward the goal of safer, healthier, and stronger communities in the central Appalachian region and beyond by initiating and partnering on initiatives that address contemporary challenges and issues. Through a variety of formats– research reports, presentations, exhibits, conferences, and experiential learning opportunities, we inform and engage local constituents, Wheeling Jesuit students and faculty, and visitors from outside the region. We focus primarily on the following Appalachian issues: Energy Choices, Water Quality and Public Health.

The Institute’s vision is of an Appalachian region in which community members from diverse backgrounds join to create a holistic environment where they can all flourish and which will sustain and expand the livelihood and hope of future generations.
