The Division of Student Affairs is comprised of 29 units with over 300 employees. Student Affairs actively supports the University's missions of education, research, and service by providing comprehensive programs and services to assist each student in developing intellectually, socially, morally, physically, personally, and culturally. The Division anticipates students' developmental needs throughout their collegiate experience and promotes that development by fostering a community of learning. From Campus Recreation and Wellness to Living Learning Communities, Student Affairs offers a broad range of support services, activities, and programs that seek to enhance the learning environment, optimize the student experience, and accommodate the diverse needs of all students. Moreover, the Division seeks to contribute to the development of the whole individual by fostering in each student a deeper appreciation of the importance of life-long learning, individual responsibility, and human diversity.
College men on most every campus are experiencing reduced levels of engagement in and out of the classroom. This trend is a reality at East Carolina University as well. Greater understanding is needed specific to male students in the college environment, their complex developmental journeys, and identification of effective strategies to build on models of student success.
The keynote speaker will be Dr. Jake Jensen. Jensen is an assistant professor in the department of Human Development and Family Science at ECU. Dr. Jensen will address how male socialization creates pressure to conform to gender stereotypes, which impact the lack of success we often see among male students at ECU. He will also discuss the benefits of males demonstrating sensitivity and elaborate upon the need for males to feel safe being vulnerable. His research interests include examining successful romantic relationships after retirement, the impact of disclosing romantic problems to friends, and gender stereotypes and masculinity.
The new East Carolina University Student Centers projects will change the face of both campuses. The Health Sciences Student Center broke ground in July 2015 and will be 20-22 months under construction. The main campus student center breaks ground in late fall 2015 and will be 24-26 months before completion.
A website has been created to showcase the two student centers projects. Visit www.ecu.edu/studentcenters for more information related to the history of the project, what will go inside and see the latest renderings for both facilities.
Additionally, these devices are not permitted in ECU Dining facilities, the Mendenhall Student Center, or the Student Recreation Center nor are they permitted on ECU Transit buses, motor coaches and shuttles.
Recent information has revealed that the batteries in hoverboards and similar devices are dangerous and prone to explosion, creating a safety and fire risk. Since the most significant risk of hover board fires occurs during overcharging and operation, it is believed that restricting these devices from residence halls and student-focused facilities where longer charging periods may occur will minimize risk.
All personal transport/mobility devices are prohibited from use inside University buildings. This is not a new rule. Personal transport/mobility devices include hoverboards, skateboards, bicycles and similar items. Wheelchairs and other medically required devices are permitted.
