Tanner Duncan pitched a 4-hit, 10-inning, complete game
shutout in the National Club Baseball Associations World Series Championship. The
#1 ranked ECU Baseball Club team captured its 2nd National Championship with Nick
Venditti driving in Tyler Sholar with the walk off base hit in the bottom of
the 10th inning. ECU Club Baseball went 15-0 in conference play this year with
an overall record of 30-4. Under the direction of 1st year Coach Ben Fox, the
Pirates scored 327 runs and only allowed 88 runs and carried a 23-game winning streak into the post season. In 18 innings pitched in the World Series, Duncan
gave up only 5 hits, no runs and struck out 23. During the regular season, Tanner
was 9-1 with 75 inning pitched with .84 ERA, and 132 strike outs.

On June 12, more than 90 people gathered at
the Crave restaurant in Uptown Greenville to remember the 49 lives lost at the
Pulse nightclub in Orlando on June 12, 2016, which included 2003 ECU graduate Shane
Tomlinson. The evening of solidarity and hope included community members,
politicians and local authorities who were there to take a stand against

past year the Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement (CLCE) offered two
LeaderShape programs for emerging ECU students. LeaderShape is a national
organization focused on transforming the world by increasing the number of people
who lead with integrity and a healthy disregard for the impossible which
connects directly with ECU’s definition of leadership, as relational process of
inspiring, empowering, and influencing positive change.
First, in January 2017, over twenty ECU students had the opportunity to participate
in LeaderShape Catalyst, a one-day workshop focused on learning to develop one’s
own authentic path, connect to groups and specific causes, and commit to a plan
to be a catalyst of change.
One participant shared, “Catalyst taught me to
look beyond the single story that is probably the most powerful and liberating
idea. It ignited a fire in me personally that I am happy this program helped me
The Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement is looking for
campus collaborations to offer future LeaderShape Catalyst opportunities in the
In May, ECU hosted its fifth annual LeaderShape
Institute at the Trinity Center in Pine Knoll Shores. The Institute is a
six-day leadership immersion that challenges participants to lead with
integrity while working towards a vision grounded in their deepest
values. With over 100 applications, 58 participants, six ECU Faculty and
Staff; and two On-site Coordinators (student leadership for LeaderShape
Institute) had the opportunity to explore not only what they want to do,
but who they want to be. Students learned from LeaderShape faculty, each
other, and were inspired to live in possibility and influence positive change.
2017 LeaderShaper Godgive Umozurike shared, “In a matter of a week I’ve
learned the importance of listening to understand others, my own vision and
means of impacting the world, and so much more! But most importantly, I’ve
learned the importance of embracing your own path and how there are people just
like you who want to make the world a better place.”
forward, the CLCE will continue to support LeaderShape students to stay
connected through LeaderShape Day 7 workshops offered throughout the fall
semester that support their vision to create a more just, caring, and
thriving world at ECU and communities beyond. Please reach out to the CLCE or
Nichelle Shuck with any questions or interest in future collaborations with

Over the past two
years, the offices within the Dean of Students unit have experienced tremendous
growth and have been given the opportunity to bring on new staff members who
are exceptionally motivated to serve our students in many capacities. While we are very excited about this progress
in meeting the ever-increasing needs of our students, the increase in staff
size has created some physical limitations within our currently occupied spaces
and changes were necessary to meet the demands of this new growth.
At the end of May,
the Dean of Students office moved from the Wright Building to the first floor
of Umstead Hall. The relocation allowed
the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities the opportunity to expand office space to meet the demands of their recent staff additions.
All telephone numbers
and mail stop (118) have remained the same. Their new primary office address is 125 Umstead Hall.
ECU Career Services will host the fourth annual Summer
Internship Photo Contest this summer 2017. We know that ECU students

skills through internships. Students must submit a 150-word description of
their internship experience and can include up to 3 photos.
