A-SPEC is a safe space for people who identify along the asexual or aromantic spectra or who are questioning to come together and address topics and issues the communities face, to advocate for the communities' increased visibility on Appalachian State University's campus, and to establish a peer social support network for members.

A-SPEC meets on Mondays at 5:00 PM in the LGBT Center Quiet Room (PSU 106). As a safe space organization, A-SPEC has a closed-door policy; in other words, only people with identities on the asexual and/or aromantic spectrums may attend meetings.
