Message from the Chancellor

Welcome to Elizabeth City State University!

Since 1891, Elizabeth City State University has proudly served students from around the country, across the state, and most notably from northeastern North Carolina. As the university celebrates its 125th Anniversary in 2016, ECSU's commitment to providing access to an intellectually stimulating, high-quality, affordable education in an ideal campus setting will continue to serve as its hallmark.

PresidentConsistently, ECSU has earned top rankings in college guides and national publications. Our latest rankings – #1 in Washington Monthly's Best Baccalaureate Colleges (2015) and #2 in U.S. News and World Report's (2016) Top Public Schools (Regional Colleges in the South) – are noteworthy accomplishments. Moreover, our recent recognition on the list of the 2016 Military Friendly® Schools brings deserved attention to ECSU's keen focus on distinctive approaches to providing college access to a broad community of learners.

With 28 undergraduate degree offerings and four graduate degree programs, flexible study options and research opportunities are limitless. Students' participation in honor societies, creative endeavors, musical ensembles, CIAA sports, clubs, and student life activities all enhance their personal growth and leadership development. New technology-enhanced learning initiatives also give ECSU students a competitive advantage in the 21st century

You'll find that our dedicated faculty, staff, students, alumni, and community partners make ECSU a great university.

Dr. Thomas E. H. Conway, Chancellor
