Description
East Carolina University is a public, coeducational, doctoral/research university in Greenville, North Carolina, United States. Named East Carolina University by statute and commonly known as ECU or East Carolina, the university is the third-largest university in North Carolina.[4] Founded on March 8, 1907 as a teacher training school, today East Carolina is listed by Forbes magazine as a Best Buy and 181st among national universities by U.S. News & World Report. It has historical academic strengths in education, nursing, business, music, theater, and medicine, and offers over 100 Bachelor degree programs, 85 masters degrees, 21 doctoral programs, Doctor of Medicine, Doctor of Dental Medicine, and 62 certificates.[5]
History
Public Laws of North Carolina, 1907, Chapter 820 titled An Act to Stimulate High School Instruction in the Public Schools of the State and Teacher Training is the official law chartering East Carolina Teachers Training School (ECTTS) on March 8, 1907 by the North Carolina General Assembly.[12] The chairman of its original Board of Trustees, Thomas Jordan Jarvis, a former Governor of North Carolina now known as the Father of ECU, participated in groundbreaking ceremonies for the first buildings on July 2, 1908 in Greenville, North Carolina and ECTTS opened its doors on October 5, 1909.[13][14] Although its purpose was to train young white men and women, there were no male graduates until 1932.[15] In 1920, ECTTS became a four–year institution and renamed East Carolina Teachers College (ECTC); its first bachelors degrees were awarded the following year in education.[13] A masters degree program was authorized in 1929; the first such degree granted by ECTC was in 1933.[13] Progress toward full college status was made in 1948 with the designation of the bachelor of arts as a liberal arts degree, and the bachelor of science as a teaching degree.[16] A change of name to East Carolina College in 1951 reflected this expanded mission.[13] Over the objections of Governor Dan K. Moore, who opposed the creation of a university system separate from the Consolidated University of North Carolina, ECC was made a regional university effective July 1, 1967, and assumed its present name, East Carolina University. The university did not remain independent for long; on July 1, 1972, it was incorporated into the University of North Carolina System, the successor to the Consolidated University.[13] Today, ECU is the third–largest university in North Carolina with 21,589 undergraduate and 5,797 graduate students, including the 308 medicine and 52 dental students.[2]
