FACULTY/STAFF DIRECTORY

 
Rapid Center Service Area

The Rapid Center and Western Carolina University are situated in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains – and in one of 10 “Megapolitan” geographical regions in the U.S.*Service Region

 

These functional economic regions transcend political borders and are connected by factors including commuter and goods movement, business linkages and cultural commonality. The Rapid Center serves businesses and industries throughout the Southeast and beyond, providing access to “mega” product development resources and working to achieve our goals of economic transformation and engaged learning.
