ECU to host two public forums on Aycock naming

East Carolina University will host two public forums to gather feedback on the naming of Charles B. Aycock Residence Hall — one session focused on students’ opinions and the other for employees, alumni and the community.

An ad hoc naming committee made a recommendation to the chancellor last month, who communicated his recommendation about the naming to the Board of Trustees at its December meeting. The board decided to delay its vote until the next scheduled meeting on Feb. 19-20.

The ad hoc naming committee will record and use feedback from the public forums to update their recommendation to the chancellor by Feb. 11.

Student forum:
Monday, Jan. 26
4 - 5:30 p.m.
Wright Auditorium

Faculty/staff, alumni and community forum:
Tuesday, Jan. 27
4 - 5:30 p.m.
East Carolina Heart Institute, Auditorium

Robert Brinkley, chair of the ECU Board of Trustees, will attend both sessions and a moderator will lead the forums. Attendees are welcome to join one or both events to provide their feedback.
