Welcome from the Division of Administration and Finance
New ECU Faculty:
On behalf of the outstanding staff in the Division of Administration and Finance, I would like to welcome you to East Carolina University.
When I arrived here 24 years ago as a newly-graduated Assistant Professor, I quickly learned that ECU is a very special place. Across ECU we have thousands of employees who are committed to our students, our mission, our region, and our state. We are a big university, but we don't act like it. ECU has close to 29,000 students and 5,500 employees yet on a day-to-day basis we work together, person-to-person, to help each other.
The employees of the Division of Administration and Finance provide the operational framework that will help you succeed. Our employees are responsible for Human Resources, Information Technology, Payroll, Cashier, Budget, Purchasing, Buildings and Grounds, Housekeeping, Vending, Bookstore, Printing, Mail, Financial Services, Parking, and dozens of other activities that you may never notice, but that are essential to help you accomplish your teaching, research and creative activity, and service responsibilities.
