The Appalachian Studies/Center Committee, also known as the Committee to Review the Appalachian Commitment, was appointed in 1987 by President John Stephenson to advise on matters relating to the activities of the Appalachian Center and the Appalachian academic program at Berea. The committee, however, was also charged with the task of conducting a comprehensive review of Berea's Appalachian commitment with a view to making recommendations that would become part of the long-range planning process. Gerald Roberts chaired the committee that produced the "Report of the Committee to Review the Appalachian Commitment" in January of 1989.
