The Chancellor's Committee on the Status of Women (CCSW) started helping to improve the lives of women on campus and in the community in 1971. Through events, outreach, and engagement on and off campus, we bring attention to achievements and the challenges women at East Carolina University face everyday.

On behalf of the Chancellors Committee of the Status of Women, we would like to offer our condolences to the family of Dr. Rebecca Fay in light of her untimely passing.
