ECSU is the premier public institution serving northeastern North Carolina, providing affordable academic programs and services of exceptional caliber in a nurturing environment.
ECSU was established by the North Carolina General Assembly in 1891 as a teacher training school. In 1969, its name was changed to Elizabeth City State University to reflect expansion and the addition of graduate programs. When the University of North Carolina System was formed in 1972, ECSU became one of the system’s sixteen constituent universities and entered into its current phase of organization. ECSU enrolls over 2,300 undergraduate students and offers 37 baccalaureate programs and three masters programs.
