New Employee Onboarding
Dear New Student Affairs Educators:
Welcome to the Division of Student Affairs. You have joined us at an exciting time in ECU’s history as it emerges from its first 100 years as a national doctoral university with a record of achievement in medicine, teacher education, and the visual and performing arts. ECU is now setting a bold course for our second century that will lead us to success as we prepare our students to compete in the global economy. As a Student Affairs educator, you play an integral role in that success.
I am so glad you have chosen to add your talents to the team of educators within the Division of Student Affairs with whom you will be working. We are all intent on accomplishing the mission of providing the programs and services that optimize student learning, leadership, and overall support and development. The division is comprised of eight Units with 22 departments and 12 Offices & Programs with over 300 employees. Please take advantage of the opportunities to learn more about each one of them.
The division has developed its strategic plan for the next three years. Please review the plan and familiarize yourself with our vision, mission, and values. I encourage you to ask questions, get involved, seek leadership roles, join in committee work, and integrate our strategic plan, vision, mission, values in everything you do.
Again, welcome to East Carolina University and to the Division of Student Affairs. I am glad to have you on our team as we continue our course to success and to positively impact the lives of our students. It is a great time to be a Pirate.

Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
Welcome to Greenville
Greenville is widely recognized as the thriving cultural, educational, economic, and medical hub of eastern North Carolina. While retaining our Southern charm and hospitality, Greenville has grown into the 12th-largest city in the state and is now a thriving, small metropolitan city of nearly 100,000 in the heart of Pitt County.
Located close to ECU’s Main Campus, a vibrant uptown district is home to diverse art, music, food and festival offerings and features an increasing number of unique, locally owned businesses, galleries, shops and restaurants. Greenville is centrally located in eastern North Carolina, a region whose coastal environment provides a backdrop for tourism, water sports and wildlife viewing. The Outer Banks to the east can be reached within a few hours’ drive, and Raleigh to the west is a couple hours away.
