ECSU Teacher Preparation Partnership Program
Elizabeth City State University is committed to the partnerships that have been established with Halifax Community College (Weldon, NC) and College of The Albemarle (Elizabeth City and Manteo, NC) that are within the university's service region. This collaborative initiative has been a significant step toward producing "homegrown" teachers to meet the demand needed for classrooms in North Carolina. The university has established seamless articulation agreements with these community colleges for programs of study in elementary education. Additional partnerships have been established through Martin Community College (Williamston, NC) and Roanoke- Chowan Community College (Ahoskie, NC). ECSU has also established the Lateral Entry Certificate Program Articulation Agreement between College of The Albemarle, Halifax Community College, Martin Community College and Roanoke-Chowan Community College for prospective lateral entry education students. Once partnership students have transitioned to ECSU, they are provided with a set of curriculum guides and a 2 + 2 student handbook listing guidelines and services provided through ECSU. ECSU courses are taught on-line, face-to-face (evening/weekends), and hybrid at HCC-Weldon, NC, and COA-Manteo, NC, fall, spring, and summer semesters.
