Chancellor Conway Outlines Working Group Strategy at Community Forum
Elizabeth City State University is preparing for an anticipated surge in enrollment when N.C. Promise, the reduced tuition program, rolls out in the fall of 2018. That’s the message ECSU Chancellor Thomas Conway delivered to more than 40 community members during a community forum Tuesday, Nov. 7, held at Mt. Lebanon Baptist Church, The Mount, in Elizabeth City.
Last month Chancellor Conway and University of North Carolina System President Margaret Spellings announced the launch of phase two of a working group implemented to advance ECSU into the future. During his presentation at the community forum, Chancellor Conway said this working group will consist of three Board of Governors members and three Board of Trustee members, and the goal of the second working group is to begin securing the infrastructure, or internal operations, of the university in preparation for growth.
“We are starting to get a lot of interest not only from our 21 county-area, but also a lot of applications from the Raleigh-Durham and Charlotte-Mecklenburg areas,” Chancellor Conway said.
