Division of Institutional Advancement
The Division of Institutional Advancement works to build, sustain and enhance financial support to the university through a wide variety of strategic outreach efforts. Monetary gifts and resources are distributed and leveraged to benefit the academic and cultural growth of students, to better serve Elizabeth City State University's primary constituents, and to enhance the quality of life in northeastern North Carolina. Priorities in the area of university development include increasing endowments and annual scholarship support. The division manages all activities that provide the framework for building strong financial support and lasting relationships with alumni, community members, ECSU Foundation board members, ECSU employees, corporations, churches, parents, and Board of Visitors.
As the university's main external relations arm, the Division of Institutional Advancement is headed by a vice chancellor and includes the areas of university relations and marketing, radio and television services, community development, and alumni relations.
