Photo of the cupola and red autumn leaves
Photo Information: The cupola on ECU's campus is a double-sized replica of the domed roof structure that once crowned the top of the original Austin Building, one of the first buildings constructed on campus which was used for classrooms and administrative offices. It was torn down in 1969.

Office of International Affairs


The ECU Office of International Affairs (OIA) and International House, http://www.ecu.edu/cs-acad/intlaffairs/, are a campus resource for: student education abroad (including study, exchanges, internships, scholarships, etc.); undergraduate international student admissions; international student orientation and advising; hosting J-1 international scholars on campus; faculty opportunities abroad; establishing agreements with universities and institutes outside the US; and the Thomas W. Rivers Distinguished Professorship in International Affairs (or "Rivers Chair"). It is OIA that administers the ECU Language Academy (ECULA), http://www.ecula.ecu.edu.

The International House – or iHouse – is located at 306 East Ninth Street, south of the Student Recreation & Wellness Center in the southwest corner of ECU's East Campus.

General Information


ECU faculty who are not US citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents ("Green Card holders" or "resident aliens") in the US must have permission from the US Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) to remain and to work in the United States. This permission comes in various forms of immigration classifications and all non-citizens and non-immigrants must establish and maintain a valid immigration status for ECU employment. New faculty will already have addressed this employment requirement upon receiving their ECU hire letter.  Those with questions, however, should contact ECU Director of Immigration Services Brian Meyerhoeffer, at 252-737-4769 or meyerhoefferb@ecu.edu.
