Asheville Center


Serving the specific needs of Asheville, Western North Carolina and beyond.

The Center for Graduate Studies is located in the historic Montford neighborhood in Asheville, just steps away from all of the great things that downtown offers. Full-time, terminally degreed faculty direct our graduate programs, mentor students and develop community partnerships. 

Our graduate programs are specially designed to meet both the needs of the Asheville community and of graduate students balancing work and school. Our classes, held in the evenings and on weekends, offer flexibility in scheduling for the working professional.

LR's Asheville Center currently enrolls more than 200 students in 10 programs and is known for its leadership in key community initiatives.
