HS Student Center Groundbreaking
“We’re dedicated to educating the whole person – student life is part of that,” said Steve Jones, newly elected chair of the board. “This is a state-of-the-art facility (health sciences students) can call their own.”
The facility is expected to open in spring 2017 and is located in the open space between the East Carolina Heart Institute and the Colleges of Allied Health and Nursing.
All health sciences students will come together here…outside of their individual programs and can learn – in a neutral space – to collaborate together. The Health Sciences student center will have a Starbucks as well as the Wedge and a convenience store for dining options. Additionally, Campus Recreation and Wellness will have 25,000 square feet of space for workout equipment, fitness classes/programs and two basketball courts.
The main campus student center and parking deck project is expected to begin construction work after the completion of the fall 2015 semester.

It is designed to help women identify, understand, and move into leadership roles in the academy.

Our campus has a long history of serving and engaging the local community. Originally a teacher training school in eastern North Carolina, East Carolina has grown to become an accredited institution serving nearly 27,000 students. Despite the growth in the last century, it has never forgotten its roots or relationship to local community. Indeed, the school touts its commitment to public service and regional transformation at almost every turn – through strategic planning documents, mission statements, and official university communications.
