#ECUnited is much more than a simple hashtag.  It is a grassroots student movement that started in 2016 and is led by a university wide steering board.  Each year #ECUnited challenges the East Carolina community to bridge the worlds of ideas and actions through their development of a annual theme that is operationalized through partner programs, advocacy, and education. #ECUnited movement works to deepen the understanding of the issues that impact our local and global communities.

ECUnited – Campus and the Community

#ECUnited started with the focus on ECU’s campus as one student – one faculty member – one staff member – making a difference in the campus community to influence positive change. The next logical component is to engage the Greenville / Pitt County community and beyond. Check back to this website during the semester for updates and ways to engage / participate.

#ECUnited Goals

  • Support partner programs where community concerns are a priority and dialogue is an expectation, focused on increasing understanding and influencing change.
  • Build a community that advocates for equity and inclusion across faculty, staff, students, and alumni through the development of annual campus themes.
  • Develop educational tools that promote the celebrations of civil discourse and freedom of expression as university community standards.
