Outreach & Engagement


As the only institution of higher learning in northeastern North Carolina, Elizabeth City State University is a major academic and cultural center as well as an economic driver in the region. Therefore, the university takes seriously our mission to reach out to local communities to enhance and improve the quality of life.

From education and science to health and economic development, ECSU's faculty, students and staff are involved in innovative programs that touch the lives of people in our local communities and around the globe.

At ECSU, teaching and learning go beyond the classroom. Community service and a global outlook are encouraged among our students. Our faculty and staff demonstrate their commitment to outreach and engagement through public, private and government partnerships. The university actively seeks out partnerships and service opportunities to improve life in our region, our state, our nation and in communities worldwide.
