ECU Tomorrow: A Vision for Leadership and Service

Dr. Steve Ballard Chancellor

ECU will provide world-class entertainment and powerful inspiration as we work together to sustain and improve the community’s quality of life.

ECU will enhance and expand its position as an arts and culture center.

  • We will build a world-class Center for Visual and Performing Arts.
  • We will develop and attract exhibits and performances that will significantly enhance Greenville’s standing as an arts and culture community.

ECU will be the catalyst for a true renaissance of downtown Greenville.

  • ECU will leverage our expanding population of students and staff to support positive development in downtown Greenville.
  • In partnership with the city and private businesses, ECU will extend its physical presence into downtown, using new and renovated buildings for university purposes that will benefit the entire community.

ECU will strengthen the athletics program and build the conference relationships and venues that best reflect the university and the region.

  • We will expand the football stadium and improve other facilities as we position the athletics program for the future.
  • We will be a national model for conducting intercollegiate athletics the right way—with integrity, with commitment, and always with student success at the center.
