News Services

This is the ECU story.

At News Services, we tell the stories of Pirate Nation — stories of students and faculty discovering treasure on our nearly 1,600-acre campus and beyond, of health care professionals pioneering advances in medicine, of researchers making breakthroughs and of alumni who are changing the world.

Founded in 1907, ECU has answered the call to serve for more than a century, whether it’s meeting the demand for more teachers and doctors or improving economic conditions and quality of life in the region. Today, East Carolina’s bold direction continues to define its region and legacy.

We are ECU. We are Pirate Nation.
