Honors College Parents and Families

The Honors College considers the parents and guardians of our current students and alumni as an extended part of our family.  Thus, a growing number of volunteers, advocates, and donors have emerged from this important group of stakeholders.  The Honors College is pleased to engage and support the parents and guardians of our students through a number of initiatives.  More information about these opportunities for parents and guardians to become engaged with the Honors College can be found on this page.

Honors College Parent & Family Listserv

The Honors College collects contact information on a voluntary basis for parents and guardians of our current Honors students and alumni.  This contact information is added to a special distribution list so that interested family members can stay connected to the opportunities and pertinent news items coming from the Honors College and East Carolina University.

Parents and guardians who wish to be added to this distribution list may contact Kevin Baxter.

The Eakin Campaign

Dr. Richard Eakin, Chancellor Emeritus and Interim Dean of the Honors College, retired from the Honors College on June 30, 2013.  In honor of Dr. Eakin's many contributions and his leadership role in the development of the Honors College, a priority fund has been established: the Richard R. and JoAnn Eakin Dean's Priority Fund.  Gifts to this fund will allow us to name the Honors College Dean's Suite after him in recognition and appreciation of his dedication and commitment to ECU's Honors College.  All contributions to this fund will directly support Honors College students and the living-learning programming series.

Gifts may be made through the online giving website by selecting 'Honors College' as the fund and 'Richard R. & JoAnn Eakin Dean's Priority Fund' as the second fund using the drop-down menus.  If you wish to make a gift using a different giving option, please contact Kevin Baxter.
