Welcome from the Dean of Students

dean-roederDear Students,

It is my pleasure and privilege to serve as your Dean of Students. As the Dean of Students at East Carolina University I have the great honor of providing leadership and direction for several centers and services and serve as a senior advocate for students. In my role as advocate, I work closely with faculty, staff and student leaders to enhance the quality of university life for students.

The Dean of Students Office seeks to facilitate the integration of the academic experience of students with all aspects of the university and student life. The Office encourages interactions among students, faculty and staff to promote a campus climate which supports students' academic success and their personal and professional development. In addition, our Office strives as an advocate for student issues, needs and concerns; responds to emergency and crisis situations that affect our students; and assists students in preparing for their lives beyond East Carolina University.

In order to make certain you have a successful journey during your tenure at East Carolina University, we would like to equip you with the tools needed to navigate the campus and successfully complete your program of study. The Student Handbook: “At The Helm” will provide you with the necessary information to accomplish your goals at ECU.  This handbook will assist you in becoming acquainted with services that are available to support you in your educational growth and development in and beyond the classroom. The student handbook will serve as your resource guide to university services, and student life activities and programs.

I encourage you to browse through the website for more in-depth information about any of our areas and to learn about the ways we can enrich your experience as a student at East Carolina University.

It is my sincere hope that you will take full advantage of all that ECU has to offer you

Best Regards,
Dean Roeder
