Message from the Chancellor
Welcome to Elizabeth City State University!
Students are our first priority at Elizabeth City State University. Our goal is to ensure academic excellence for each student by providing rewarding educational experiences and quality instruction in a nurturing environment. Through our degree programs and highly qualified faculty, we envision that, upon graduating, every ECSU student will be equipped with the skills to compete in an advanced and global society.
At Elizabeth City State University, we offer a broad range of undergraduate degree programs in our schools of Business and Economics, Math, Science and Technology, Arts and Humanities, and Education and Psychology. We are known for our outstanding signature programs - pharmacy and aviation. Our students also participate in study abroad programs in South Africa, Korea, Australia and many other international destinations. Our faculty members bring a wealth of talent to our classrooms each day. Many of our faculty have been recognized on the state, national, and international levels with awards for teaching, research and service.
Campus life, designed for both our resident and commuter students, is also very important at Elizabeth City State University. We provide an atmosphere complete with a wide variety of social and cultural activities while maintaining a comfortable and safe environment conducive to personal development and academic achievement.
Located in the historic Albemarle region of northeastern North Carolina, we are only an hour from the beaches of the Outer Banks of North Carolina and Virginia Beach, Virginia, where students may find countless opportunities to broaden their cultural and social experiences.
At ECSU, we are working each day to prepare our students to be leaders and productive members of society. Community service and a global outlook are encouraged among our students, faculty, staff and alumni. Through research, outreach and technology, ECSU is having a positive impact across the globe. As we continue our commitment to our mission, the university, the region and the state will continue to elevate higher and emerge stronger.
